Andrea Krizsan is Research Fellow at the Center for Policy Studies of the Central European University in Budapest. Her work focuses on understanding gender policy change in countries of Central and Eastern Europe, and the role non-conventional policy actors play in it. She works on different equality policy fields including gender equality policy, policies on gender based violence, policies addressing ethnic inequalities and intersectionality. Her current project analyses domestic violence policy reforms in five Central and Eastern European countries, and the role of women's movements in explaining the quality of policy changes. She was part of a number of large European comparative projects on gender equality including MAGEEQ and QUING. Her publications cover violence against women, intersectionality, equality institutions and Europeanisation. Andrea has a PhD in Political Science from the Central European University.
