Julien Vrydagh is researching on the policy impact of mini-publics in Belgium. On the one hand, he conducts case study in order to trace the policy influence of mini-publics. On the other, he compares Belgian mini-publics with a fuzzy set Qualitative Comparative Analysis in order to understand the conditions under which they succeed or not in exerting an influence. Besides his research, he is also a teaching assistant for courses on the History of International Relations, introduction to political sciences and Federalism in Belgium. Outside my work, Julien loves cooking, travelling, football, and digging and playing vinyl of disco music.
