Research interests

Kjell Noordzij (1995) is a political and cultural sociologist who studies the social aspect of representative democracy. Much of his research concerns how different groups of citizens perceive of democracy and their representation in it, and how political conflicts play out inside and outside electoral politics.

Inspired by works from Bourdieu’s Distinction to Erasmus’ In Praise of Folly, Kjell aims to learn from others’ perspectives and to uncover the implications of these perspectives for citizens’ democratic attitudes and behavior. Reflecting his broad range of interests and his interdisciplinary research profile, he has published on status conflicts, political trust, perceptions of cultural distance to politicians, populism, turnout, and political representation.
