Léonie de Jonge

Léonie de Jonge is an assistant professor of European Politics & Society at the Faculty of Arts. She studied International Relations at Cornell College in Iowa and obtained her Master’s degree and PhD in Politics & International Relations at the University of Cambridge. Her PhD focused on the successes and failures of right-wing populist parties in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg (the Benelux). Her interests lie in populism, European integration, comparative politics, party politics, and media (including social media) research.

Léonie de Jonge is trying to understand the rise and normalization of the far-right in the twenty-first century. The question of why right-wing populist parties are more successful in some countries and regions is of particular interest to her. In 2021, she joined the Young Academy Groningen. In this network, she focuses on academic freedom and achieving, maintaining, and protecting this.

In 2021, she published her book The Success and Failure of Right-Wing Populist Parties in the Benelux Countries. In addition, she regularly writes for Dutch politicology blog Stuk Rood Vlees. Various news channels, including NPO Radio 1 and RTL Television, have interviewed her on her political insights. And even international news sources, such as the BBC, Newsweek, and the Economist regularly consult De Jonge as an expert.
