I am the Stein Rokkan Chair in Comparative Politics at the European University Institute, in Florence.  

I am a Fellow of the British Academy, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

My main areas of research and teaching are comparative, European, and EU political behaviour and institutions – in particular parties and party systems, public opinion and voting behaviour, electoral systems and the design of democracy, and legislative behaviour.

The 4 books that made me a political scientist, or how I met @simonjhix and how it is going:
1) 1999: made me want to be a political scientist
2) 2005: learned how to teach polsci as a PhD-student
3) 2011: the book that got me the permanent job
4) 2022: the adventure continues

No clear evidence that voters hold MPs accountable on the salient and divisive issues – suggesting that, overall, average levels of issue accountability for British politicians are very low.

Same in Italy. Viewed from the Continent, the lack of mask wearing or social distancing in the UK seems really reckless. Not surprising the case numbers are rising fast again. My fear is that’s only a matter of time before the EU restricts entry from the UK again

French train … and they enforce it … not a maskless face in sight. You FEEL safer. And the numbers would suggest you ARE safer.
