Research interests

My new research project is titled:"Parliamentary control: How to move beyond partisan behavior?" and is funded by Carlsbergfonden:


The project´s empirical focus in on the parliaments in the Nordic countries, and focuses on variation in control institutions and procedures and effects on MPs behavior in control activity.

The project builds on the experiences from my Ph.d. project.

My Ph.d dissertation from November 2018: “MP Firefighting: When do MPs hold government accountable?” addresses the central accountability concern about how to control executive power. Even though the voters have an important say in this, they have no formal control options between elections. Here, parliaments have a say, especially in parliamentary systems where parliament delegates power to government, not the voter. Government answers to parliament. However, in parliament, MPs face expectations from different roles, the strongest being the role as “partisans”. The dissertation enhances our knowledge about MPs and parliamentary control by investigating under which conditions MPs engage in control activity. The dissertation focuses on Fire Alarm control activity from decentral parliamentary control institution and argues that Fire Alarms call for MP Firefighting in parliament.
