About Daniel Naurin

I am professor of political science at the University of Gothenburg. As of January 2016 I am also professor at the University of Oslo and partly on leave from my position in Gothenburg. I have previously been a research fellow at the EUI (Florence), Sussex European Institute (UK), Monash European Centre (Melbourne) and the Swedish Institute of International Affairs (Stockholm). I received my PhD from the University of Gothenburg in 2004.

Areas of interest

I have worked with a broad range of research questions during my research career, including lobbying and interest group politics, transparency, corruption, international governmental negotiations, deliberative democratic theory and, more recently, judicial politics. Much of the empirical focus has been on politics within the European Union, which I find a fascinating political system for political scientists to study. My current research projects deal with the legitimacy of international court, the decision-making of the Court of Justice of the EU, with gender effects on negotiations in the EU Council of Ministers, and with lobbying and interest group populations in Sweden and Europe. You will find more information on these projects in the left hand panel on this page.

Publications and work in progress

One of the publications I am most proud of is the book Deliberation Behind Closed Doors: Transparency and Lobbying in the European Union (ECPR Press 2007). Other recent publications include “Judicial independence and political uncertainty” (with Olof Larsson) in International Organization (2016), “Speaking Law to Power” in Comparative Political Studies (with Olof Larsson, Mattias Derlén and Johan Lindholm), “Generosity in intergovernmental negotiations” in European Journal of Political Research (2015), “Try to see it my way!’ Frame congruence between lobbyists and European Commission officials” (with Frida Boräng) in Journal of European Public Policy (2015), “When does transparency generate legitimacy?” (with Jenny de Fine Licht, Peter Esaiasson and Mikael Gilljam) in Governance (2014), "Out in the Cold? Flexible Integration and the Political Status of Euro Opt Outs" (with Rutger Lindahl), which received the Sage Award for best article published in European Union Politics, Volume 11 (2010), and “Least common when most important. Deliberation in the EU Council of Ministers”, British Journal of Political Science (2010).
