Caterina Froio is Assistant Professor in Political Science/e-politics at Sciences Po, Centre for European Studies and Comparative Politics (CEE). She is also an affiliate researcher to the Center for Research on Extremism (C-REX; University of Oslo). Before joining the CEE, Caterina was a VOX-Pol Research Fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute (2016-2017) and subsequently (2017-2018) an assistant professor in political science/European politics at the European School of Political and Social Sciences (ESPOL-Lille).
Caterina’s research interests are broadly in European politics, with a special emphasis on political parties, agenda-setting dynamics, e-politics, right-wing extremism, radicalism and populism. Since 2016 she is joint convenor of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) Standing Group on Extremism & Democracy.
Caterina is currently working on two projects. The first one (funded by VOX-Pol) examines nationalistic discourses of contemporary European far right organizations online. The second (funded by the VolkswagenStiftung in partnership with the Oxford Internet Institute and GESIS) examines online communication of the so-called populist parties, their grievances and audience exposure to these complaints in Europe and the US.
