Since 2001, Andrea Krizsan has been a Research Fellow at the Center for Policy Studies at Central European University Budapest.
She is interested in understanding progressive policy change in Central and Eastern European countries. 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. Andrea's 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 mobilising for policy change (2015), ethnic monitoring and data collection (2001) and co-edited one with J. Squires and H. Skjeie on institutionalising intersectionality and the changing nature of European equality regimes (2012).
