Om Victor Lapuente Gine


Lapuente is a Senior Lecturer and Associate Professor at the Department of Political Science and a Research Fellow at the Quality of Government Institute (QoG Institute), University of Gothenburg. He received his PhD in Political Science from the University of Oxford and the Juan March Institute (Madrid) and joined the QoG Institute in 2007.

Areas of interest

Lapuente's research deals mostly with comparative public administration and corruption. Why do some countries build up autonomous “Weberian” administrations? Do some political regimes produce administrations with higher quality of government and lower levels of corruption than others? Why some countries adopt New Public Management reforms?

Other research interests include the impact of separation of powers on economic policy making and financial markets: do systems with mechanisms of separation of powers produce different economic policies or affect financial markets in a systematic manner? Under which circumstances separation of powers leads to economic policy gridlock and when does it lead it to consensual decision-making?

Current research

Lapuente is working on the effects of a politicized administration vis-à-vis a meritocratic one on a series of economic and political variables. In addition, he is involved in a large research project to map the level of corruption (and Quality of Government) in Europe, both at national as well as at sub-national level.  

Teaching and tutoring

Lapuente is the coordinator of the course The Quality of Government in a Comparative Perspective (SK2212) and teaches on the International Administration and Global Governance (IAAG) Master's Programme.
