She wrote a play called The Evangelists, which created controversy for its depiction of the relationship between Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene. Not all of her writings have been controversial, and her books, The Quest for Good Governance: How Societies Develop Control of Corruption and A Tale of Two Villages: Coerced Modernization in the East European Countryside, were well-received analyses of systems of governance.
She is the editor of the Romanian Journal of Political Science.
