Dr Allan Sikk
Lecturer in Baltic Politics
020 7679 4872
I studied political science at the University of Tartu and, while concluding my PhD on new political parties in the Baltic countries, I taught various subjects in comparative politics and managed nationwide post-election surveys. After defending my PhD, I applied my academic expertise for the benefit of the research service of Riigikogu, the Estonian parliament. I joined SSEES in 2007 as lecturer in Baltic politics.
My main research interests lie within the realm of electoral and party politics - encompassing subjects such as electoral systems, party system stability, political financing regimes, voting behaviour, and cabinet stability. I have mostly focussed on post-communist political systems, but have also been interested in methodological questions and in whether the experiences of post-communist democracies can tell us something about politics in general, regardless of region or continent.
Teaching and Supervision
At SSEES, I teach or contribute to the following courses:
I would welcome PhD proposals related to electoral and party politics, or political culture regardless of the intended method of research. Other topics focussing on the Baltic countries or dealing with methodological issues in comparative research are also welcome.
