About Maria Solevid


I'm Associate Professor in political science and Assistant head of department with responsibility for education at the Department of political science. I primarily conduct research within the Center for Ageing and Health (AgeCap) and the Swedish National Election Studies Program

I was awarded my Ph.D. in political science in 2009 from University of Gothenburg on a doctoral thesis titled “Voices from the Welfare State. Dissatisfaction and Political Action in Sweden”.

Areas of interest

My primary fields of interest include political behavior, public opinion and political psychology. My research focuses on political participation, both electoral and non-electoral participation. I have a general interest in how perceptions of government (such as policy dissatisfaction or percpetions of corruption) affect political participation, the issue of political inequality in political participation, and how political participation varies across generations. I also have great interest in survey methodology.

Current research

I'm currently studing how capability and quality of life is associated with political participation among older people. I have previously worked in the project "The politics of anxiety" where we investigated why there are differences in levels of anxiety between men and women and what the consequences of anxiety on political behavior are. As a follow-up to this project, we are currently studying how gender identity is associated with political attitudes.

Within my work as a principal investigator at the SOM Institute, I headed the SOM survey to expartriated Swedes in 2014 and the local SOM survey in Gothenburg 2016/17. Within these projects, I have studied political participation among expatriated Swedes and local political behavior in Gothenburg.

Teaching and tutoring

I primarily teach within the master program in political science. Since 2007, I’m the course coordinator of the master's course ”Applied Statistical Analysis” (SF2321). I’m member of the thesis examiner committee on the undergraduate level in political science. I also work as advisor of both bachelor and master thesis within my fields of interest.
