About Elena Leuschner

I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg since 2020. I study the political impact of protests by examining how protest dynamics enfold, how governments accommodate protests and what effects these accommodations have. Hereby, I employ quantitative and computation methods to advance the study of protests as a form of contentious action and popular political behaviour.

Further, I am also a research fellow at the University of Konstanz in the research project "The Politics of Evaluation in International Organizations" at the chair of Professor Steffen Eckhard:

I hold two Master degrees from the universities of Konstanz and Gothenburg. For my Bachelor studies, I graduated from the Univeristy of Konstanz.
