CEES centre webinar: Electoral clientelism in Eastern Europe
- Isabela Mares (Yale)
- Lauren Young (University of California Davis)

- Petr Kopecky
- Friday 21 May 2021
Isabela Mares (Yale) and Lauren Young (University of California Davis) join our roundtable to discuss their new book Conditionality & Coercion: Electoral clientelism in Eastern Europe. They have investigated illegal forms of campaigning, including vote buying and electoral coercion, in two democratic countries in the European Union: Hungary and Romania. While most voters judge candidates who use clientelism harshly, politicians still get away with such malpractices. Why? And what could be done about it?
This roundtable will be hosted by Maria Spirova, Antoaneta Dimitrova and Petr Kopecký. All staff and students are welcome to join!
