My research concerns party competition, protest politics, and their interaction. Next to the more specific papers listed below, I am currently working on a book manuscript on parties involvement in the protest arena. Most of my research takes a comparative European perspective, but in some of my work I focus on the politics of my home country, Romania. The level of analysis varies between individual citizens and protest/party organizations in their national context. The list below is not exhaustive but should give an impression of my on-going work.
