Martijn van Nijnanten has been working as a PhD candidate in the Institute of Political Science at Leiden University since september 2014. Prior to starting his PhD track, he studied political science at Leiden University as a research master student, receiving his MSc degree.

His primary research interest is the study of political parties, especially party success and processes of party change. His PhD research is focused on political parties experiencing a state of crisis following an external shock like a crushing electoral defeat or severe internal tensions, asking whether and how these parties recover.
