Author Biography

Ladislav Cabada

Born in 1973, he studied Political Science at the Faculty of Social Sciences of
Charles University and the University of Ljubljana. He works at the
Department of Political Science and Humanities at Metropolitan University
Prague, where he is also the vice-rector for academic development and the
director of the university center in Pilsen. In 2005 he co-founded an
international journal titled Politics in Central Europe, of which he is now the
chief editor. In the years 2006-2012 he was the chairman of the Czech
Society of Political Sciences, and since 2012 he served as the chairman of
the Central European Association of Political Science. He is emeritus dean of
the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen (he
served as its dean in 2005-2009). In his research he deals with the
comparative politics of Central and Eastern Europe, especially with its
political systems, actors and political culture. He authored or co-authored
20 books and more than 100 other professional publications on this topic,
with about half of the works being published abroad. His latest contribution
is the book Political Parties in East Central Europe, which he co-edited with Vit
Hlousek and Peter Jurek, and which was published in January 2014 by
Lexington Books.
