Daniel Bladh is a doctoral student in adult learning and education at Linköping University in Sweden. The thesis defense takes place in the beginning of the autumn semester 2023. The main focus of his research is the design and organization of intra-party education which is provided by political parties in Sweden to their members and representatives. Intra-party education is organized in all political parties that are currently represented in the national parliament and may cover topics such as ideology, communication, or leadership. The research also focuses on how the organization of intra-party education may affect the actions of the parties and their representatives when working to attain political goals in the political landscape.
