SUMMARY

My main research interest lies in the interplay of national and local politics and the twin processes of democratisation and decentralisation in Indonesia and the Philippines. For my PhD I focus on election campaigns at the local level of both countries. The research aims to investigate how recent institutional changes and various (new) actors in campaigning influence the power relations between groups of actors in the national and local political sphere.
