Nils Gustafsson

elite networks, political communication & social media

Nils Gustafsson is a political scientist and senior lecturer in strategic communication. Research interests include politics in relation to social media and elite networks. He teaches political communication and quantitative methods.

Background

I am a political scientist with a broad interest in communication and power. I defended my doctoral dissertation in political science "Leetocracy: political participation, social network sites and inequality" on 3 May 2013 at Lund university. Since 2013, I have been doing teaching and research at the Department of Strategic Communication. 

Area of research

My research interests include political aspects of social media. For the past decade, I have been doing research on the implications of social media on political participation, political communication, political parties, political activism, and civil society. Recently, I started a major research project studying career effects of networking among students at Nordic business schools. I have also published writings on research methods, research ethics, and constitutional politics.

Selection of recent projects

  • Network and net worth
    This project is funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (The Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation) and Vetenskapsrådet (2018-2022) is a longitudinal study of women's and men's social networks in Nordic business education and their effect on career outcomes. The research group consists of Gergei Farkas of Linnaeus University, Anna Tyllström of the Institute for Future Studies, and Nils Gustafsson. Learn more about the project.
  • Political participation among young people
    This research project is funded by the Marianne & Marcus Wallenberg Foundation (2015-2018) and studies the development of political participation among young people in Sweden. The research group consists of Lund university political scientists Malena Rosén Sundström and Hanna Bäck and Emma Bäck of the Dept of Psychology at the University of Gothenburg. Hanna Bäck, Emma Bäck and myself also wrote a research report for the Democracy Study of the Swedish government (2014 års Demokratiutredning). The report (in Swedish) is available here (pdf).
  • NEMO
    2013-2014 I was involved in the NEMO project (New Media, Modern Democracy) here at the Department of Strategic Communication, with a study on social media in the Swedish Riksdag. The project resulted in a book. Learn more about NEMO.
