Andreas Bågenholm, Ph.D. is a Senior Lecturer and Research Fellow at the Department of Political Science and the Program Manager at the Quality of Government Institute and the Project Manager for the EU financed ANTICORRP project.
My research interest lies in European party politics concerning party system instability and success of new parties in Central and Eastern Europe and politicization of the issue of corruption in election campaigns in Europe during the last 30 years.
I am currently working on different aspects of politicizing corruption in election campaigns in 33 European countries during the past 30 years. In one study I map the frequency and type of politicization of corruption cross country and over time as well as what type of parties that tends to politicize the issue the most. In a second paper, I examine the electoral effects, both for the parties that politicize corruption and the governments that are accused of being corrupt. In a third paper I examine how well the “anti-corruption parties” manage to actually curb corruption. And finally in a fourth paper, I will study how the media might influence voters’ perception on corruption and their willingness to support anti-corruption parties.
I teach mainly on comparative politics, political systems and East European history and politics. I am responsible for one ten week graduate course on the political science program.
