'The impact factor of my research profile is threefold. Firstly, the academic impact is to explore interdisciplinary field of political research, political theory, philosophy and arts and create and support research in this interdisciplinary zone. In this area, I have supervised and I am supervising several doctoral dissertations and masters thesis and been part of international networks and teaching since 1990’s. I was also vice-president on research team Politics and the Arts as part of Centre of Excellence in Political Thought and Conceptual Change (2006-11). I am also working as referee for several international publishers in this area and have been part of editorial boards. International co-operation: Since 2002, I am the convenor of the international group that combines political scientists and art researchers as part of European network This network includes conferencing and publishing activities. Since 2016, I am also contributing to New Opportunities for Research Funding Agency Co-operation in Europe (NORFACE) network and recently, The EU-India Platform for Social Sciences and Humanities (EqUIP). This is a project funded by the European Commission, bringing together research funding and research support organisations in Europe and India in order to develop a stronger strategic partnership in the social sciences and humanities. The societal impact of my academic work is e.g. contributing to science policy for instance in Finnish Political Science Association as board member (2004-14) chair (2007-10) and editor in chief of Politiikka (2005-06
