Reini Margriet Schrama



I am a Post Doctoral researcher at the Department of Political Science, of the University of Copenhagenand. In 2017 I obtained my PhD from the Center of Comparative Politics at the ETH Zurich.

My expertise is in European politics, member state compliance with EU directives and networks of stakeholders monitoring and enforcing the implementation of EU policies on the ground.

I am passionate about social network analysis in particular and I enjoy learning to apply data science tools to collect, process and visualize data in a comprehensive way.

Currently, I am working together with Prof. Dorte Sindbjerg Martinsen (University of Copenhagen) and Prof. Ellen Mastenbroek (Radboud University Nijmgen) on a project to study the functioning, establishment and role of European Administrative Networks in the implementation of EU policy by national authorities.


Publications this year:

2018, Journal of Public Policies

Swift, brokered and broad-based information exchange: How network structure facilitates stakeholders monitoring EU policy implementation
