Background

Primary research interests: research interests lie in comparative politics. In particular she is interested in the comparative study of political parties and party systems, elections and electoral behavior, the politics of federalism and decentralization, political geography, and European and EU politics. Her current research explores how the geographic concentration of economic interests in a country affects the likelihood that candidates and parties will focus on territorial constituencies, and how that in turn affects the party system. Carolina is also researching electoral behavior in competitive authoritarian regimes in the Middle East, and has published a chapter on electoral balancing in federations using the case of Spain ( de Miguel., 2010). “Electoral Patterns in Federal Countries: Moderating in the Case of Spain” in Jan Erk and Wilfried Swenden (eds.), New Directions in Federalism Studies, European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) series, London: Routledge.
