About Daniel Naurin

I am professor of political science at the University of Oslo and Gothenburg and Director of ARENA. I have previously held positions at the European University Institute (Florence), the Swedish Institute of International Affairs (Stockholm), and research fellowships at Emory University (Atlanta), Sussex European Institute (Brighton) and Monash European Centre (Melbourne). I received my PhD from the University of Gothenburg in 2004.

Areas of interest

I have worked with a broad range of research themes during my academic career, including judicial politics, lobbying, transparency and international negotiations. Much of my empirical work has focussed on the politics of the European Union. My ongoing and most recent projects study judicial decision-making in the Court of Justice of the EU, the Swedish Supreme Court and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights; coalition building and the impact of gender in the negotiations in the Council of the EU; and the link between lobbying and public opinion in Europe.

Publications and work in progress

My two most cited publications are the article “Transparency is not Enough. Making Transparency Effective in Reducing Corruption” (with Catharina Lindstedt) in the International Political Science Review (2010) and the book Deliberation Behind Closed Doors: Transparency and Lobbying in the European Union (ECPR Press 2007). More recent publications include: "The Dilemma of Dissent. Split Judicial Decisions and Compliance with Judgments from the International Human Rights Judiciary" (with Øyvind Stiansen) in Comparative Political Studies (2020); “Don’t cry for me Britannia: The resilience of the European Union to Brexit” (with Narisong Huhe and Robert Thomson) in European Union Politics (2020); “Gender stereotyping and chivalry in international negotiations” (with Elin Naurin and Amy Alexander) in International Organization (2019); “Split Vision. Multidimensionality in the European Union’s Legal Policy Space” (with Olof Larsson) in International Studies Quarterly (2019).
