Tarik Abou-Chadi is a political scientist at Oxford University, where he studies politics in Europe. In the summer of 2023 he also became an Einstein BUA/Oxford Visiting Fellow affiliated with political scientist Prof. Heike Klüver at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, where he is in charge of a small research group of his own. The two of them are studying change in party politics in Western Europe and voter behavior. His work also explores why many disappointed people turn toward right-wing populist parties, how established parties respond to the shift, and what ramifications this has for the political landscape.

The Einstein BUA/Oxford Visiting Fellowship is awarded to outstanding scholars and scientists by the Einstein Foundation Berlin. The fellowship program gives researchers from Oxford an opportunity to supervise a working group in Berlin for three years, working on topics under the BUA’s Grand Challenge initiative.
