Félix Krawatzek is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow based at the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford and a Research Fellow at Nuffield College. He is a political scientist with a particular interest in comparative historical analysis and discourse analysis. In his doctorate he studied the political relevance of youth mobilisation and the ideas about youth in moments of regime crisis comparing contemporary Russia with other European cases of regime crisis. He has a long-standing research interest related to collective memory in particular in the European context and is involved in a large project studying migrants’ remittances in a historical perspective.
During his stay at the CES, Krawatzek will work on his postdoctoral research project “Politics of the Future” and investigate how differences in political systems influence the governance of the future. This project is also comparative and combines quantitative and qualitative discourse analysis to gain a better understanding about the actors that are involved in shaping politically relevant ideas about the future.
