Research interests

Anduiza's research examines citizens’ political engagement in advanced democracies, including the causes and consequences of electoral turnout, vote choice, political protest, digital media, and political attitudes. She is also interested in survey and experimental methodology. Recently her research has focused on the attitudinal consequences of the economic crisis, with a special focus on understanding the triggers and implications of populist attitudes. In her current project, she is exploring change in political attitudes using panel data covering over a decade of political turmoil in Spain. She is analyzing the consequences of party system change for individual behavior, observing how new parties generate political engagement and meaningful partisanship among supporters. She is also studying the interplay between attitudes towards gender equality, feminist protest mobilization, and vote choice, detecting that gender backlash is one of the main predictors of far-right vote choice.
