Presentation

Marcia Grimes is a lecturer at the Political Science Department and researcher at the Quality of Government Institute, University of Gothenburg.

Research interests

Grimes research interests include the role of civil society in combatting corruption, both in terms of contributing to societal accountability, as well as advocacy efforts to bring about legal and institutional change. Her earlier work focuses on whether citizens’ perceptions of fairness in decision making affect their inclination to trust political institutions.

Current research

Grimes is currently working on two projects related to government transparency, one related to its measurement and the second exploring its implications for civic activism and in the longer term, for the possibility of reducing corruption. Additionally, she is involved in a collaborative effort with Lena Wängnerud exploring the relationship between women’s representation and levels of corruption.

Teaching and tutoring

Since 2009, Marcia Grimes has been the Director of Studies for the Master of Science program International Administration and Global Governance. She also is teaches and is course coordinator for a course on environmental politics at the bachelor’s level.
