My name is Swen Hutter and I am a post-doctoral research fellow at the European University Institute, where I work on the ERC project "Political Conflict in Europe in the Shadow of the Great Recession" (POLCON). Furthemore, I am involved in the ERC project "How Citizens Get Involved in Politics and Why" (POLPART) at the VU Amsterdam. Before coming to the EUI, I was a researcher and reader in comparative politics at the University of Munich.

My main research interests include social movements, political parties, political participation and cleavage structures.
