Aksel Sundström: Youth without representation

Main content

Aksel Sundström, associate professor at the University of Gothenburg, will give a short lecture on Youth without representation.

Sundström has two major research interests: 1) the relationship between corruption and effective environmental politics, especially in low-income countries, and 2) the study of political representation, focusing on the absence of women and youth in political institutions (such as parliaments, cabinets, and local councils).


The CORE Lecture Series is organised by the CORE research group (Citizens, Opinion, Representation, and Elections) at the Department of Comparative Politics. Leading international scholars are invited to present their ongoing research on a broad range of topical issues for the research group.

The seminars are funded by the SAMEVAL grant awarded by the Norwegian Research Council.

The seminar will be held on Zoom and is open to all.
