About Jonathan Polk

Presentation

I am an Associate Professor (Docent) in the Department of Political Science and the Centre for European Research (CERGU) at the University of Gothenburg. I completed my Ph.D. in political science at the University of Georgia in 2012.

Areas of interest

My teaching and research interests include political parties, European politics, representation, and political participation in economically advanced democracies.

Current research

I am a member of the Chapel Hill Expert Survey (CHES) research group, which administers web-based surveys to estimate the positions of political party leadership in Europe. I am also the co-principal investigator of the Swedish Party Membership Survey. This project collects and analyzes information on the political attitudes and behavior of over 10,000 members from seven different Swedish political parties.

 Finally, I have an ongoing research project exploring the immediate and long-term effects of ideological repositioning for mainstream political parties in Europe.

Teaching and tutoring

My teaching includes an MA course on European integration theory and research, an undergraduate course on democracy and the European Union, MA lectures on comparative politics, and supervision of student research on these topics.

Publications and papers

My research has been published in: Comparative Political Studies, the European Journal of Political Resesarch, European Union Politics, Party Politics, and the Journal of Politics, among other outlets. Please see my CV for further information about my publications.
