Andrea Krizsan is Research Fellow at the Center for Policy Studies since 2001. She is interested in understanding progressive policy change in countries of Central and Eastern Europe. She works on different equality policy fields including gender equality policy, policies on gender based violence, policies addressing ethnic inequalities and intersectionality. Her current research aims to understand the politics of policy backsliding in times of crisis and forms of resistance to such reversal. Her most recent book project with C.M. Roggeband analysed domestic violence policy reforms in five Central and Eastern European countries. Her publications include articles in Violence against Women, Journal of International and Comparative Social Policy, Ethnic and Racial Studies, Social Politics, European Integration Online Papers, Policy Studies, European Journal for Women's Studies, Journal for Ethnic and Minority Studies and chapters in several edited volumes. She edited a volume on women's movements mobilizing for policy change (2015), ethnic monitoring and data collection (2001) and co-edited one with J. Squires and H. Skjeie on institutionalizing intersectionality and the changing nature of European equality regimes (2012). Besides her academic work Andrea also acts as the Chair of the CEU Senate Equal Opportunity Committee. She leads the CEU team of the SUPERA Supporting the Promotion of Equality in Research and Academia Project.
Andrea has a PhD in Political Science from the Central European University.
