My name is Vilde Lunnan Djuve, and I am a new PhD student here at the department. I have a BSc (2014) and MSc (2016) in Political Science from the University of Oslo. For the past 18 months, I have worked as a research assistant with the project Disentangeling the Economic Effects of Political Institutions (DEEPI) led by Prof. Carl Henrik Knutsen at the University of Oslo. My main task has been coding a part of the Historical Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) dataset that contains a detailed registry of the beginnings and ends of the regimes of the world from 1789 until today.

My PhD project is titled “From Competition to Constraints: A three-level approach to explaining institutional variation” and is supervised by Svend-Erik Skaaning and Lars Johannsen. My aim is to build an elaborate mixed-methods design to examine the relationship between historical levels of elite competition and the emergence of institutional systems with considerably constrained executives. The aforementioned dataset forms an important foundation for the project as a whole.

I look forward to meeting you all!
