Erika van Elsas is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Political Science. She researches citizens’ perceptions of the legitimacy of political institutions at both the national and EU level. Specifically, she is interested in the impact of polarization and (media) information on such perceptions – as well as on the consequences of these perceptions for the quality of democracy.
Erika obtained her PhD (cum laude, 2017) at the University of Amsterdam, where she worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Amsterdam School for Communication Research (ASCoR) and the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR). At Radboud University, next to her research activities, she is involved in coordinating various courses on political science research methods (BA and MA).
