Work in progress

I currently focus on two research areas. The first expands my analysis of the openness-egalitarianism puzzle - the question to what extent domestic degrees of equality and inclusion depend on the degree of external societal closure. The second strand offers fresh takes on two topics: policy diffusion and voting rights extensions to migrants and kin minorities.
