De Kadt studies political behaviour in young democracies. His current focus is on how ease of access to voting stations influences the decision to vote, and subsequently the macro-electorate. Other work addresses questions of vote choice and electoral politics. His secondary interest is in teaching, developing, and applying new methodologies for causal and statistical inference, specifically with applications to newly established democracies.
