Fabio Wolkenstein receives this year’s Research Award for his “exceptionally extensive and impressive research production” with 15 articles in international, peer-reviewed journals. 

The nomination highlights Fabio’s ability to define “abstract political-theoretical theory in more specific studies of, for example, electoral systems, (transnational) parties and their role in democracy, the EU's political legitimacy, and populism”.  Fabio is described both academically and socially as “a great asset in the section for political theory” and is praised for his active involvement in the research applications submitted by the department. Congratulations Fabio!
