Maija Setälä


I received my PhD from The London School of Economics in 1997. Since then, I have worked at University of Turku and Åbo Akademi. In 2012, I was appointed as a Professor of Political Science at University of Turku. Previously, I have made research visits at Columbia University, Australian National University and University of Westminster. I was the Principal Investigator of the project “Participation in Long-Term Decision-Making” (PALO) funded by the Strategic Research Council of Academy of Finland (2017-2022). Currently, I lead the project “Facing Systemic Change Together” (FACTOR) funded by the Academy of Finland (2021-2024).
