Short presentation

My research focuses mainly on political recruitment and political representation in a comparative perspective. Particular attention is paid to the examination of how gender inequalities in politics are reproduced and overcome. I am also interested in research on how young people develop political attitudes and behavior.

Ongoing research projects: (1) Engendering electoral authoritarianism, (2) Gender aspects of election violence, and (3) Gender and social media in contentious elections.

My research focuses mainly on political recruitment and political representation in a comparative perspective. Particular attention is paid to the examination of how gender inequalities in politics are produced, reproduced, and overcome. I am also interested in how young people develop their political attitudes and behavior.

My ongoing research projects concern gender and election violence, gender and electoral authoritarianism, gender and social media in contentious elections, and social science education and young people's development of civic competencies. All projects are funded by the Swedish Research Council.
