Background and activities

Democratisation by exclusion? Scandinavian Social Democracy and the Iberian transition to democracy 1974-1986

My PhD project examines how the Scandinavian social democrats handled the issue of incorporating the young, unstable democracies on the Iberian Peninsula into the Western community of democracies. It explores the role of the transnational social democratic network and diverging views on how best to further democratisation.

Time period: 2016-2020.
