About Nora Theorin

I am employed as an associate researcher at the Department of Political Science since 2021, within Swedish National Election Studies and the research project "Knowledge Resistance: Causes, Consequences and Cures".

I defended my doctoral thesis – "Us Versus Them and the Role of the Media. The Influence of Media on Attitudes Toward Migration in Europe" – in November 2021. The doctoral studentship was included in the research project "Role of European Mobility and its Impacts in Narratives, Debates and EU Reforms". The project was funded by Horizon 2020, the EU framework programme for research and Innovation. During the research project, a panel study and a survey experiment was conducted in seven European countries, and I used that data in my dissertation.

Before I started the doctoral studies, I worked as an associate researcher at the Department of Psychology within a project focusing on political psychology. I also have a master's degree in political science from the University of Gothenburg.

Research interests

I am especially interested in research that focuses on political opinion, media effects, and migration.
