KITLV researcher Wouter Veenendaal has been awarded a Veni grant for young excellent researchers. His research project ‘Explaining Political Stability in Small States’ examines why small countries do have more stable political systems than large ones, despite the weakness of political structures and strongly personalized politics? This project examines the effects of smallness and informal relations on political stability, and analyses how personal relations can contribute to the absence of political crises and violence.
