Pau Vall-Prat

I am PhD Candidate at the Department of Political Science at the Universitat de Barcelona. Currently, I am also visiting researcher at the Political Science Department of Göteborgs universitet during the Fall Semester 2021.

My thesis focuses on intra-elites conflicts in democratization periods, how this influences the rise of new regional parties and the policies these parties employed in order to consolidate.

I was Research Assistant (2017-2018) in the ERC Project "The Birth of Party Democracy", led by Carles Boix, at the Institutions and Political Economy Research Group (IPERG), Universitat de Barcelona.

In 2015/2016 I did the MSc Political Science and Political Economy at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

I hold a BA in Political Science and Public Administration, and a Research Master in Political Science from Universitat Pompeu Fabra.
