Dr Athanasios Psygkas

Athanasios (Akis) Psygkas's main research interests are in the areas of comparative public law, law of democracy, regulation and governance, and democratic constitutionalism. His latest book, entitled "From the 'Democratic Deficit' to a 'Democratic Surplus': Constructing Administrative Democracy in Europe" (Oxford University Press, 2017), examines the impact of European Union Law on the adoption of participatory regulatory processes at the member-state level.

Akis is currently working on two projects. The first pertains to constitutional statutes ('Extraordinary Statutes: Making Constitutional Commitments Through Legislation'). The second, entitled 'The Participatory Democracy Index', proposes a model of thinking about stakeholder engagement in public policymaking beyond Election Day.
