Contact: steuer(@)iir.cz

Clément Steuer is a Political sociologist, senior researcher at the Institute of International Relations, Prague. He is conducting research on political party systems in the Middle East and North Africa.

His project aims to study the circulation of partisan models in the countries of North Africa and the Middle East. The aim is both to contribute to improving knowledge of these parties, which are real gateways to the societies of the region, and to question the theoretical models constructed on the narrow basis of the study of Western parties alone. The countries of the region present a certain number of particularities concerning social cleavages and their formation. Moreover, the ideas, symbols, forms of organization and activists of the various political parties circulate from one country to another, within the area under study of course, but also sometimes from (or towards) countries outside it, and the most powerful parties often seek to export their models beyond their borders.

This work will be based not only on field surveys and interviews with leaders, elected officials and activists of various political parties, but also on more quantitative studies (lexicometry; presence/absence of various themes) based on the political programs of the parties represented in the parliaments of several countries.
