Research Interests:

I am interested in the impact of political institutions on state-society interaction, and the role of non-dominant groups in the political process. My current research has two foci: I use the case of minority rights, minority integration and minority participation to understand how Europeanisation affects the integration of heterogeneous societies and minority agency. Here, I have worked primarily on postcommunist transformation of state and society, but I increasingly look at other EU member states. Secondly, I am interested in how EU multilevel governance affects perceptions of policy competence, political authority, and interest representation at the European, national and sub-state levels, and its implications for European integration.
