Aksel Sundström

Welcome! I am an Associate Professor and senior lecturer at the Department of Political Science, University of Gothenburg. I have previously held visiting positions at Harvard University and the University of Oxford.

I am the PI for Quality of Government (QoG) Data, where I work with a fantastic team to provide data on corruption and societal indicators to the public sphere.

My research agenda focuses on comparative politics with two substantive research interests: 1) the study of 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. 

My work is published in a range of international outlets. Examples of recent outputs are:
