Profile


Paul Blokker holds a Ph.D. from the European University Institute. Currently, he is associate professor in Sociology (fulltime) at the Institute of Sociological Studies, Charles University, Prague. He was principle investigator in the research unit ‘Constitutional Politics in post-Westphalian Europe’ (CoPolis) in the department of Sociology, University of Trento, Italy (financed by the Provincia Autonoma di Trento, 2012-15). The project aimed at an interdisciplinary analysis of constitutional change in four European countries, analysing constitutional reform, and constitutional claims-making as well as the constitutional discourses and critique as endorsed and articulated by a variety of actors (legal, political, and civil society). See for the project: CoPolis

Blokker obtained the Abilitazione Scientifica Nazionale for the position of Associate Professor in General, Political and Legal Sociology (14 C/1) and Political Science (14 A/2) in 2012 and 2013. He was a Visiting Fellow at the Law Department of the European University Institute in April-July 2014.

He is a member of the International Editorial Board of the European Journal of Social Theory, member of Editorial Collective of the new journal Social Imaginaries (international editorial board includes inter alia Charles Taylor, Craig Calhoun, Fred Dallmayr, Peter Wagner), a board member of the Research Network 32 European Political Sociology, European Sociological Association, member of the International Editorial Board for Partecipazione e Conflitto/Participation and Conflict (FrancoAngeli).


Research

My research interests are constitutional sociology, constitutional reform, imaginaries (social, political, economic), social, political and legal theory, political sociology, democratic participation, and forms of critique.

My current research focuses on comparative constitutional change (in particular, focusing on the case of Italy),  social movements and constitutional mobilization, and constitutional instrumentalism and populism.

A recently concluded research project, Constitutional Politics in Post-Westphalian Europe (CoPolis), University of Trento, comparatively researched constitutional reform in four European countries: Hungary, Iceland, Italy, and the UK.
