Dr Max Grömping
Workshop on “Policy Advocacy and the Media in Non-Democracies”
Dr. Max Grömping organized a workshop on “Policy Advocacy and the Media in Non-Democracies” which took place on 2 and 3 August at the Centre for Asian and Transcultural Studies (CATS). The event was generously funded by the Fritz-Thyssen-Stiftung and Heidelberg University's Research Council Field of Focus IV (FoF4) “Self-Regulation and Regulation: Individuals and Organisations”. Participants joined the workshop from the US, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Germany, Switzerland, the UK, the Netherlands, Austria, Czech Republic and Sweden to present papers on the organization, strategy choice, lobbying success, and governmental relations of interest groups and NGOs in autocracies. Contributions will be published in an edited volume in 2020. Please see here for further information.

Max Grömping received his doctoral degree in July 2017 at the Department of Government and International Relations of the University of Sydney. In his dissertation he examined the causes and consequences of domestic election monitoring through the lens of agenda-setting theory. Max works in the fields of comparative democratization and comparative political communication. His research interests include agenda-setting and frame-building in the issue space of human rights, with a focus on NGOs and interest groups in hybrid regimes. Furthermore, he investigates the domestic drivers of electoral integrity, and participation in political organizations online and offline, with a regional focus on Southeast Asia.
In April 2018, Max joined the Institute of Political Science at the University of Heidelberg as lecturer. Previously, he worked as Research Assistant (2013-2016) and Program Manager (2016-2017) of the 'Perceptions of Electoral Integrity' expert survey for the Electoral Integrity Project based at Harvard and Sydney universities. From December 2016 to February 2017 he was visiting Research Fellow at the Department of Democracy and Democratization of the Social Science Center Berlin (WZB). Max helped develop the Secure and Fair Elections ('SAFE') Model Curriculum for the United Nations Development Program in 2014, and worked as a lecturer at the Faculty of Political Science of Thammasat University in Bangkok from 2010-2013.
