Tania Verge is Lecturer at the Department of Political and Social Sciences at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) and Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Sussex (2006-2007). Her primary research interests lie in political representation, gender and politics, and political parties. Her current research explores the gender biases in party candidate selection processes, gender quota adoption and implementation, and the gendered informal institutions that hinder women's participation within political parties. Tania is also interested in the interaction between multi-level settings and the party organization as well as in party-group relationships.
