About Joachim Åström

Joachim Åström is Professor of Political Science. His academic work mainly focuses on democratic innovations, changing patterns of citizen participation, and institutional change. Will new forms of citizen participation reinvigorate representative democracy? What are the factors that facilitate or hinder their success? In several projects, he has paid special attention to relationships between information technology and politics, and citizen participation and trust.

Åström received his PhD in Political Science at Örebro University 2004, became Associate Professor 2010 and full Professor 2013. He is former Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences and current member of the University Board.
