My work encompasses the fields of European Studies, Political Sociology, Comparative Politics and International Political Economy. My research concentrates on how political, economic, cultural and social transformations influence the process of democratization and consolidation of democratic institutions in the Member States of the European Union, as well as in transition and developing countries. A particular attention of my research activities is also given to analytical sociology and to mechanisms of institutional change.
My most recent publications include Permanent Emergency Welfare Regimes in Sub-Saharan Africa. The Exclusive Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy (Palgrave Macmillan, forthcoming March 2013), Post-Communist Welfare Pathways. Theorizing Social Policy Transformations in Central and Eastern Europe (together with P. Vanhuysse, 2009, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan), Promoting Human Security: Ethical, Normative and Educational Frameworks in Western Europe (together with P. Burgess, et al., 2007, Paris: UNESCO) and Social Policy in Central and Eastern Europe. The Emergence of a New European Welfare Regime (2006, Berlin: LIT Verlag). I am also currently editing a major volume for the Policy Press (Bristol) entitled Migration and Welfare in the ‘New’ Europe. Social Protection and the Challenges of Integration (with Emma Carmel and Theo Papadopoulos, University of Bath, UK). My work has appeared in various international peer-reviewed journals, such as Politics & Policy, Social Policy & Administration, International Journal of Social Welfare, Journal of Human Security, Czech Sociological Review, Romanian Journal of Political Science and ESELY Hungarian Social Policy Review.
