Steven M. Van Hauwaert is a post-doctoral researcher and F.S.R. Fellow at the Institut de Sciences Politiques Louvain-Europe, Université Catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain) and a research fellow in the international project PATHWAYS. He received his PhD from Sciences Po Paris in 2013 and also holds degrees from Marquette University (USA) and the University of Antwerp (BE). He has previously held positions as an NU Fellow at Northwestern University, a Visiting Researcher at the University of Amsterdam and a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher at the University of Vienna. His current research is two-fold. On one hand, his on-going research analyses the apparent multidimensional right-wing shift (Verrechtsing) of politics and society throughout the past three decades. On the other hand, he also studies different forms of inequality both within and between representation and participation. In addition, he is currently working on a number of side-projects, which include gender inequalities in political participation, the conditional relationship between party attachment and ideological volatility, the connection between conspiracy theories, fear and the FN vote in France and the systematic underestimation of the far right party vote in public opinion surveys. His most recent teaching commitments include courses at both the BA- and the MA-level, primarily focusing on quantitative methods and different subfields of comparative politics. He currently leads the Belgian project BE-PATHWAYS and is also engaged in a number of comparative projects such as PATHWAYS (ORA+ ANR), LIVEWHAT (EU FP7) and PARTIREP (BSP IAP). Steven van Hauwaert is also a Research Fellow for the French Team in PATHWAYS. For further information, please check Van Hauwaert’s personal website.
