Ekaterina R. Rashkova
Ekaterina R. Rashkova
Ekaterina R. Rashkova is an Associate Professor at the School of Governance at Utrecht University, the Netherlands. Previously, she has held positions at Sussex University, Leiden University and the University of Innsbruck. She received her PhD from the University of Pittsburgh, and her MA and BA from Washington University in St. Louis. Her research interests lie in understanding the behavior of political actors and the strategies they employ, given the institutional framework and the societal make-up within which they operate. Currently, she is busy with two projects – (1) better understanding substantive representation and (2) the extent to which parties operate abroad. Her work has appeared, among others, in Comparative European Politics, European Political Science Review, International Political Science Review, Party Politics, Political Studies, Representation, West European Politics as well as in several edited book volumes. In the Fall 2023, she is a Visiting Scholar at SUNY Binghamton, NY, working on a paper on the effect of exogenous shocks (such as Covid-19) on new party entry (co-authored with Yen-Pin Su).
