Research interests

Naurin has a wide research interest in theories and practices of representative democracy. Specific interests are parties' election pledges and politicians' responsiveness to public opinion. She also studies adult politial socialization, especially the role of pregnancy for individual's' political opinions, behavior and knowledge about politics.

Naurin's work is published in journals such as American Journal of Political Science, British Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, Political Studies, West European Politics, Scandinavian Political Studies and Party Politics. She has also published the book Election Promises, Party Behaviour and Voter Perceptions (2011) with Palgrave Macmillan, which in 2015 received the SWEPSA prize for best book on Swedish politics 2011-2015. In Swedish, Naurin's work is found for example in the book Det politiska spelet (Studentlitteratur 2014, together with Bengt Johansson, Staffan Kumlin and Lena Wängnerud). She regularly contributes to the research blog Politologerna. 

Together with Terry Royed and Robert Thomson, Naurin coordinates the Comparative Party Pledges Project (CPPP). CPPP performs comparative research on party pledges in 12 countries. Forthcoming (March 2019) is the book Party Mandates and Democracy. Making, Breaking, and Keeping Election Pledges in Twelve Countries, with the Univeristy of Michigan Press. 

In December 2017, Naurin was appointed Wallenberg Academy Fellow to create the Gothenburg Research Program on Pregnancy and Politics. The project investigates the role of pregnancy and childbirth for individuals' political development. Questions regarding this are more than welcome and related early stage results are available on request. See also: Pregnancy and perceptions of politics.
