Visiting Scholar 2015-2016


Thomas Winzen

Thomas Winzen is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the European Politics Group at the Center for Comparative and International Studies at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. His research interests broadly cover European integration and the study of parliaments.

While at the Center, Thomas will work on a project on the engagement of parliamentarians and parties with the politics and policy-making of the European Union. This project will seek to answer several questions: When are parliamentarians motivated to raise European topics in parliamentary discussions? Are these issues raised for political purposes or do these parliamentary debates mirror tensions between supporters and opponents of integration within the countries?

This information is accurate for the time period that the scholar is affiliated with CES.
