I am a Professor of Political Science, with a special focus on the Baltic Sea Region and Eastern Europe, at the Centre for Baltic and East European Studies (CBEES), Södertörn University. My research interests comprise democratisation, public opinion and political participation. In 2013, I co-wrote and co-edited a volume on political party systems in 19 countries in Central and Eastern Europe (Berglund, Ekman, Deegan-Krause, Knutsen and Aarebrot, eds., The Handbook of Political Change in Eastern Europe. Third Edition. Cheltenham: Edward Elgar, 2013).
I am currently involved in a project analysing public opinion in the three Baltic states (European Values under Attack? Östersjöstiftelsen 2013-2015).
