Research summary

In my research, I use social constructivist and interdisciplinary approaches for understanding politics and society in Central and Eastern Europe. I have previously worked in and on Poland, Belarus and Russia. My main interest is in constructions of national and European identities in these countries, using discourse and narrative methodologies. I am also interested in democratisation, de-democratisation and populism as well as migration.
