Frank M. Häge

Political Scientist

Research

My current research focuses on Legislative Politics, Political Development, and Research Methods. Substantively, I study legislative decision-making within and between the institutions of the European Union. I am also interested in questions about the historical development of political parties, legislatures, and democratic institutions in Western Europe.
