Academic interests

Comparative political economy, welfare state development (throughout the world), inequality and redistribution, labor market regulation and working time, trade unions and corporatism, political survival, electoral systems, party organization, international organization with a specific focus on ILO, redistributive norms.

My current major project is on the two pathways to social reforms in the inter-war period: The first pathway goes through revolutionary fright associated with the Bolshevik revolution and communist organization. The second through the reformist organizations and movements such as the social democratic parties, associated trade unions and the international labor organization.
