My paper “Predecessors and constitutions: The evolution of Central and Eastern European presidents’ perceptions of their office” has been accepted for presentation at the 36th Annual Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Political Psychology, 8-11 July 2013, ICD Herzliya, Israel.
The paper is an updated version of my paper for the BASEES/ICCEES European Congress at Cambridge and examines the factors that have shaped CEE presidents’ perception of their office and how this perception influenced their behaviour in office.

ISPP – 35th Annual Conference in Chicago

From 3 – 10 July, I will be in Chicago to present my paper “Office, Policy or Popularity? Motivations for presidential action in parliamentary and semi- presidential systems” at the 35th Annual Scientific Conference of the International Society of Political Psychology (ISPP).
After a very stressful week, I am looking forward to meeting a few like-minded people who also enjoy spending their summer in conference centres talking about science rather than going on holiday (don’t worry, I plan to do some sightseeing as well).
