07.10.2016 | Ingrid Marie Fossum

From October to December 2016, I will be a visiting doctoral student in Svend-Erik Skaaning’s group at Aarhus University. Since 2014, I am a doctoral student at the University of Zurich. There I work and teach at Stefanie Walter’s chair for International Relations and Political Economy. My research interests lie in the intersection between international political economy and domestic politics. In my dissertation I study how foreign investment affects autocratic regime survival using both quantitative and qualitative research methods as well as data from different levels of analysis. In other projects, I study (1) the effect of offshoring on party preferences in European multi-party systems (together with Stefanie Walter), (2) the effect of foreign policy realignment on bilateral aid provision (together with Paul Schaudt), (3) the effects of trade and investment on social unrest (together with Tabea Palmtag and Stefanie Walter), and (4) how survey experiments could be improved by including placebo comparisons (together with Lukas Haffert and Raphael Reinke). I would be very happy if we had a chance to discuss your and my research!
