Other esteem indicators

In its decision Nr. 683 of 27 June 2012 the Constitutional Court of Romania cited my article in West European Politics (2009) in its judgment that Romania was semi-presidential. This decision was very important politically, because the ruling determined whether or not the President of Romania had the constitutional right to represent the country at meetings of the European Council. Apart from a citation to the work of Maurice Duverger, my article was the only one cited in the decision. The full text of the decision is available at: http://www.ccr.ro/files/products/D0683_12.pdf.

In a 2010 survey by the Political Studies Association of the UK, my article ‘Models of executive politics: a framework for the study of executive power relations in parliamentary and semi-presidential regimes’ was nominated as one of the best articles published in Political Studies in the 1990s

My blog – www.semipresidentialism.com – was named as one of the 50 Best Blogs for Political Science Students by Online Degrees.net. The blog received over 55,000 hits.
