Eelco Harteveld is Assistant Professor at the Department of Political Science of the University of Amsterdam. He studies and teaches political behavior, with a focus on populism and polarization.
His PhD thesis (available here), written at the Universities of Amsterdam and Gothenburg (Sweden), was nominated for the 2016 Thesis Award of the Dutch-Flemish Political Science Association. Eelco has published in (among others) European Union Politics, West European Politics, the British Journal of Political Science, Electoral Studies, and European Sociological Review. In 2018 he received an NWO Veni grant for a research project on affective polarization in Europe.
His two current main research projects are the following.
- Subnational context and radical right support in Europe (in collaboration with Wouter van der Brug, Sarah de Lange, and Tom van der Meer; funded by an NWO Open Research Area grant). The goal of this project is to understand how citizens' immediate context - such as their neighborhood or region - shapes their attitudes and political preferences, most importantly regional and local resentment and support for the populist radical right.
- The causes and consequences of affective polarization (funded by an NWO Veni grant). This project aims to establish the causes and consequences of (as well as potential remedies against) affective polarization - increasing mutual hostility between citizens with opposing worldviews or political identities - in European democracies.
