During her stay at CASBS, Eva Anduiza will be working on a monograph that analyzes the causes and consequences of citizens’ populist attitudes in European democracies. The book will describe the spread of these attitudes among European publics, their relation to different factors (such as economic vulnerability and perceptions of the economy, cognitive mobilization and value change, or feelings of anger and fear), and their consequences for political behavior (vote choice and participation).
Anduiza’s research interests are related to different aspects of citizens’ political engagement in advanced democracies including electoral turnout, political protest, digital media and political attitudes (such as political knowledge, partisanship, or attitudes towards corruption). She is also interested in experimental and survey methods. In her next project, she intends to analyze political change in Spain focusing on the recent large-scale feminist mobilization events and their implications for feminist identities and attitudes towards gender equality among citizens.
Anduiza is professor of political science at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona where she is also ICREA Academia research fellow and directs the research group on Democracy, Elections and Citizenship.
