Completed research programs



The majority of our research projects during the period 2007-2015 were part of the research program "The Quality of Government Institute" which started in 2007 and was funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond. The thematic focus for this research programme was the importance of Quality of Government (QoG) institutions for economic, social, as well as human development. In the menu on the left you can read more about our research programs.

March 1st, 2012 was the formal start date for a new comprehensive research project which went under the acronym ANTICORRP (Anti- Corruption Policies Revisited: Global Trends and European Responses to the Challenge of Corruption). The project was funded by the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme and consisted of in total 21 research groups in 16 European countries. The QoG Institute lead this project and was also the single largest research group in the project.

PERDEM - “The Performance of Democracies" was a large scale research project within the QoG Institute that started in 2014 and lasted for five years. The project was financed by an Advanced Research Grant from the European Research Council to Professor Bo Rothstein. The main objective of this project was to analyze the relation between how democracies are organized and how they perform in generating human well-being, curb corruption and handle the public finances.

2015- 2019, Monika Bauhr and Nicholas Charronwere involved in PERCEIVE (Perceptions and Evaluation of Regional and Cohesion Politics and Identification with the Values of Europe), a three year research project funded by Horizon 2020, the biggest Research and Innovation Programme of the EU. Their role in this project was two-fold: to design and launch a regional level survey on public perceptions of redistribution within the EU and determinants thereof and to investigate how the quality of government, corruption and European identities influence social solidarity across borders.
