Two PhD Projects Successfully Presented

The two PhD candidates within the project, Michael Pinggera and Matthias Enggist, have successfully presented their respective proposals for their PhD projects in the PhD Colloquium jointly organized by the Department of Political Science (University of Zürich) and the Center for Comparative and International Studies (ETH Zürich).

Michael Pinggera writes a dissertation about how voters’ social investment priorities shape partisan welfare politics whereas Matthias Enggist addresses the impact of second dimension issues and their salience on welfare state politics.
We would like to thank Marco Steenbergen, Stefanie Walter, Tarik Abou-Chadi and all participants of the Colloquium for their valuable comments on the planned dissertations as well as for the project in general.
