Joining the EJPR team in August 2018 is Sofia Vasilopoulou, Senior Lecturer in Politics at the University of York. Sofia holds a PhD in Politics from the London School of Economics, and prior to her current role, was a Fellow in Comparative Political Analysis in the School of Public Policy, University College London, and a Teaching Associate in Politics at Aston University.
Her research interests are in European Union politics, comparative European politics, political behaviour, and party politics with a regional focus on Europe. Her work examines political dissatisfaction with democracy and democratic institutions across Europe, with a focus on Euroscepticism and extremism. She currently leads the ESRC Future Leaders Project Euroscepticism.
Sofia's work has appeared in the EJPR itself, and in journals including Government and Opposition, Journal of Common Market Studies, Journal of European Public Policy, Nations and Nationalism, South European Society and Politics. With Daphne Halikiopoulou, she co-authored The Golden Dawn's Nationalist Solution: Explaining the rise of the far right in Greece (Palgrave Macmillan 2015).
She is convenor of the ECPR Standing Group on Political Parties and in 2008 was awarded the Peter Mair Party Politics Prize for best paper delivered at the 2008 annual ECPR Summer School on Parties and Party Systems.
