Line Rennwald received her PhD from the University of Geneva in 2013. Supervised by Simon Hug and Pascal Sciarini, the PhD project analyzed changes in working-class electoral support for mainstream Left parties in Austria, France, Germany, Switzerland and the UK. Line was a visiting PhD student at Nuffield College, Oxford, for the calendar year 2012. Since completing her PhD, Line has been a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Amsterdam (2014-16), the University of Lausanne (2016) and the European University Institute (2016-18). She is an expert on class voting and has written several articles on how union membership shapes class voting. For Unequal Democracies, Line will contribute to the module on unions, but her primary responsibility will be to generate and analyze historical data on citizen preferences and government responsiveness in several West European countries.
