Research

research overview

  • Fitzgerald's research focuses on comparative political behavior, with a specialization in advanced industrial democracies. She studies the factors that shape vote choices, partisan orientations and various political attitudes. Specific projects investigate support for radical right and green parties in Western Europe, attitudes toward immigrants in Europe, and political interest and party support among young people in Europe. More thematically, a shared feature of her various works is an emphasis on the impact of context. Specific contexts of interest include the household, local communities and broader political administrative units.
