The CSDC brings together scholars doing research on democratic citizenship (elections, political representation, civic engagement,…). The CSDC offers several additional student funding opportunities, including travel grants, methods training grants, and international exchange grants. The CSDC hosts a regular speaker series bringing in scholars from across the world who work on questions regarding political behaviour and representation. Doctoral students at the Chair are strongly encouraged to participate in the Winter School on Elections as well, that is organized jointly by the University of Leuven and the Université de Montréal.
