New job: Research Associate at UCL SSEES

Today I am starting my new job as Postdoctoral Research Associate at UCL SSEES. The position is part of Working Package 11 of the ANTICORRP project, a large-scale research project funded by the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Program and its largest social sciences’ grant (€10 million). The central objective of ANTICORRP (the full name of the project is ‘Anticorruption Policies Revisited: Global Trends and European Responses to the Challenge of Corruption’) is to investigate factors that promote or hinder the development of effective anti-corruption policies. My task will mainly lie in working with Dr Seán Hanley and Dr Allan Sikk on anti-corruption platforms of new anti-establishment political parties across Central and Eastern Europe.
