Om Gefjon Off

I am a PhD Candidate in Political Science at the University of Gothenburg since the fall of 2019. My research explores backlash against feminism and populist radical right support in Europe. I am particularly interested in conservatives' counter-reaction to feminist mobilizations and advances in gender equality. Who is most likely to counter-react and how this is manifested politically through vote choice? What triggers such backlash against feminism? Which aspects of feminism or gender equality provoke backlash?

In my dissertation, I combine observational survey data analysis on the case of Sweden, a survey experiment and cross-sectional survey data analysis on all European Union countries, as well as an interview study on the case of Germany.

I hold a MSc in Economic Development from Lund University, and a BA in European Studies from Maastricht University.
