I am Isabelle Guinaudeau, a CNRS political scientist at the Centre Emile Durkheim, Sciences Po Bordeaux. Before joining the Centre Emile Durkheim, I have completed a PhD in a Franco-German programme of Sciences Po Bordeaux and the University of Stuttgart, spent one year at the European University Institute in Florence, as a post-doctoral fellow, and three years at the research center Pacte (Sciences Po Grenoble), as an associate researcher.

My research is at the juncture between electoral studies, public opinion and public policy. My main fields of research are party competition, accountability and responsiveness. I am involved in several collaborative research projects on agenda-setting (Comparative Agendas Project ; Projet Agendas France) and I have been the principal investigator of the ANR project Partipol, a large project on partisanship in policymaking.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, wine tasting, swimming, playing jazz music on the piano and reading French, Anglo-Saxon and German literature. I blog about children's literature here.

This website proposes an overlook of these interests. Ideas and comments are very welcome!
