Adrian's previous research explored aspects of European integration, local politics, and public opinion in post-communist settings, with a particular focus on the influence of local urban politics on migration incentives and EU attitudes. Further research projects included comparative assessments of governance in post-communist cities and gender-related attitudes towards the EU.
As a research assistant at the University of Edinburgh, Adrian analysed the influence of Russian Twitter accounts on the Brexit debate as part of an ESRC funded project. Prior to that, he was employed as a research assistant at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan.
In his current role as Research Fellow for “The survival of the mass party” research project, Adrian evaluates why the mass party is still a popular model from the perspective of both the party members and party elites. The aim is to build a more nuanced conceptual framework for assessing differential party development.
