About Andreas Bågenholm


Andreas Bågenholm, Ph.D. is a Senior Lecturer and Research Fellow at the Department of Political Science. He is the Program Manager at the Quality of Government Institute, the Project Manager for the EU financed ANTICORRP project and co-editor of the European Journal of Political Research Data Yearbook.

Area of interests

My research is mainly about corruption, elections and political parties and more specifically how corruption affects both citizens’ voting behavior and political parties’ electoral performance. To what extent and under what conditions voters punish corrupt politicians and parties and corruption-ridden government manage to survive as well as the electoral performances of parties that politicize corruption (so called Anti-corruption parties) in comraison with parties that do not, are three questions that interest me. Another strand of research within the EU-funded ANTICORRP-project focuses on the extent and type of corruption in Sweden in the 19th century. Finally, the party system development in Central and Eastern Europe and in particular the question why they never seem to stabilize is another field that interest me a lot.

Current research

Currently I am working on a couple of different papers. One is focusing on the gender aspects of corruption and asks to what extent female politicians are more active in fighting corruption than their male colleagues. Another explores the relationship between corruption, politicization of corruption and electoral turnout and a third on to what extent and in which way the Swedish public administrative system was corrupt in the beginning of the 19th century. To what extent Anti-corruption parties actually manage to combat corruption once they get into power is the research question in a fourth paper.

Teaching and tutoring

I teach mainly on comparative politics, political systems and East European history and politics. I am responsible for one ten week graduate course on the political science program.
