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.
From today until mid-September, I will be in Slovakia to conduct the last interviews for my PhD thesis. The stay in Slovakia concludes my field research in Central and Eastern Europe and I will return to London upon its completion to start writing up my research.
