YEAR OF ENROLLMENT
I am a Ph.D. student in Political Science and Sociology. I did my BA and MA at University of Copenhagen, Denmark with an interest in diffusion of ideas and its implications for influence of different economic and political groups with a special attention to knowledge-holding actors and experts. My current research interest revolve around the construction of crisis as a space where specific sets of ideas can gain prominence over others and empower political as well as other actors in a differential manner with different policies to follow. My thesis deals with such questions and adds the translation of international events into domestic politics as part of the puzzle. It deals with the power of causal ideas among decision-makers within the time frame of the first oil-crisis of the early 1970s in France and the U.K.
