Project 1: CSPPR
One of the current research projects funded by the profile area Political Legitimacy is the Center for the Study of Political Parties and Representation.
This project is supervised by the political science professors Ingrid van Biezen and Petr Kopecky, and the professor in Constitutional Law Wim Voermans. See the project website http://www.csppr.net/ for more information.
Since 2016, the profile area Political Legitimacy sponsors three interdisciplinary research projects at Leiden University. With this financial impulse, the profile area supports innovative, interdisciplinary research into legitimacy issues in Leiden and The Hague - as well as the appointment of new researchers and the acquisition of new research funds from outside Leiden University.
