ELDAR will investigate three aspects of autocratic politics:
1) The emergence of autocratic regimes
2) Policymaking (“life”) in autocracies
in the areas of education, infrastructure and industrial policies,
social policies and media regulation
3) Autocratic regime breakdown.
In doing so, ELDAR will address the
preferences and capacities of vital actors in autocratic politics – the
leader, regime support groups, and mobilized opposition groups. Team
members will also study the specific, and diverse, institutions that
underpin autocratic regimes.
The project is led by Professor Carl
Henrik Knutsen and is funded by an ERC Consolidator Grant. It runs from
2020-2025. The project team includes several internationally leading
scholars on autocratic politics and political regimes at UiO and
collaborating institutions. As a member of ELDAR, the successful
applicant will also be part of the Department’s internationally leading
research group on Comparative Institutions and Regimes (CIR).
