About Rasmus Broms


Areas of interest

My fields of interest include developmental issues, institutions and governance, political sociology, and American Politics.

My dissertation project revolves around the importance of taxation for state building. From a historical perspective, previous research on the Early-Modern European state, has shown that the increasing need for tax revenue led to a professionalization of the bureaucracy, along with an increasing pressure for accountability from below. These mechanisms proved to be a decisive component in the construction of the European nation-state. My focus lies on determining whether these processes can be found in today’s developing world as well.
