Research

Adam is a political scientist. His research primarily focuses on the Europeanisation of South-East Europe and the Western Balkans, with particular reference to judicial reform, civil society development and environmental governance in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia and Kosovo. In addition, Adam has recently started to work on populism and the far-right in post-communist Europe, focusing in particular on the interaction between far-right parties and civil society networks. In collaboration with Stijn van Kessel (QMUL), he is also conducting research on pro-EU activism in the UK.
