About Evelien Willems

After working as a research associate at the departement of Political Science, I started my own PhD. The goal of the PhD is to explain to which extent interest organisations are representing the policy preferences of the public. This is done by examening the agenda and positional congruence between interest organisations, public opinion, and policy outcomes with respect to 110 concrete policy issues. We focus on the mobilisation, access, and influence phases of interest representation.
