ODA Summer Workshop 2023


Our inaugural summer research workshop brought together a series of presentations on the Group's new and upcoming research, including:

  • The impact of electoral reforms on Parliamentary behaviour (Martin Hansen)
  • Public support and opposition to voting rights tested in a series of survey experiments (Jeff Karp and Laura Sudulich, Essex)
  • Networking across the Polish-German border (Katja Sarmiento-Mirwaldt). 

We were pleased to welcome Prof Rosie Campbell to discuss her work on audit experiments and measuring MPs' responsiveness (how to do it and stay out of trouble).
