Biography

Dr Frank M. Häge is a Senior Lecturer in Politics in the Department of Politics and Public Administration at the University of Limerick. Before he came to Limerick, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Leiden University, from where he also received his PhD. He had previously graduated from the University of Konstanz with an MA in Public Policy and Management (Dipl.-VerwWiss). His research interests are in the areas of Legislative Politics and Research Methods. Substantively, his research focuses largely on the European Union. He has published on legislative decision-making in the Council of the European Union, inter-institutional negotiations between the European Parliament and the Council, the application of fuzzy set methods in comparative case study research, the measurement of foreign policy similarity in quantitative studies of international relations, and the EU’s influence on the privatization of public utilities in member states. His dissertation on committee decision-making in the Council of the EU received prizes for best PhD thesis from the Dutch Political Science Association and the University Association for Contemporary European Studies, and has recently been published by Routledge. His other work appeared in a variety of peer-reviewed academic journals, including British Journal of Political Science, European Journal of Political Research, European Union Politics, Journal of Common Market Studies, Journal of European Public Policy, Political Analysis, and West European Politics.
