Welcome to my website.
My name is Simon Fink, and I´m a political scientist. I try to find out what governments do, why they do it, and what difference it makes.
This is what my professional career and this website are about.
My academic background is comparative public policy. However, I believe that public policy can only be explained with reference to inter-, supra- and transnational factors. Thus, I´m also interested in international interdependence, policy diffusion and Europeanization.
If you would like to know more about my CV, my current projects and publications, feel free to browse this site. Some of the content is only available in german, but most of the pages are also available in english.

However, when in doubt: simonfink.wordpress.com is the most current place to look for publications, replication data etc.
