PhD Project:

My dissertation project examines how regimes make use of cultural policies in order to assure the persistence of their rule through means of cultural legitimation. Therefore I will study the different cases of cultural policies in Tunisia, Mali and Morocco in particular. All of these countries are – directly or indirectly – affected by the Arab Spring, seen as a situation of major challenge to the legitimacy claims of the respective regimes to which they had to react. In my analysis I combine cross-case and within-case comparisons and use the actor-centred institutionalism by Mayntz and Scharpf as an analytical tool. My study thus aims at providing some new theoretical insights into the interdependence and mutually reinforcing effects of cultural policies and regime stability.
