Institutions and Reforms
In 2012–2016, I was the principal investigator in the research project The Reform Capacity of Governments, which was funded by the European Research Council. I worked with Per Andersson, Thomas Brambor, and Carlo Knotz. In the late 2000s and early 2010s, I also wrote or co-wrote a series of papers about the relationship between party politics, corporatist institutions, and public policymaking, which I also link to from this page.
