Eelco Harteveld is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Political Science of the University of Amsterdam. His research focuses on political behaviour, public opinion, and the populist radical right.

Eelco obtained his PhD at the UvA in cooperation with the University of Gothenburg (Sweden). His PhD thesis (available here) examines the overrepresentation of men among the electorates of populist radical right parties from the point of view of various models of voting behavior. His MA thesis on patterns of trust in the European Union was nominated for the 2012 Thesis Award of the Dutch-Flemish Political Science Association. Previously, he worked as an intern at the Netherlands Institute for Social Science Research (SCP). Eelco has published in (among others) European Union Politics, the British Journal of Political Science, Electoral Studies, and European Sociological Review.
