2020 Ernst Haas Fellowship Recipients

EUSA is pleased to announce the Recipients of the 2020 Ernst Haas Fellowships.

Roslyn Dubler is a doctoral candidate in the Department of History at Columbia University, where she is working on a dissertation on the norm of 'non-discrimination on the basis of sex' and its impact on law and social policy in the European Community in the late twentieth century. With the support provided by the Ernst Haas Fellowship, she will return to the Historical Archives of the European Union to consult the collections on work and social policy in the DG V for Social Affairs and the Commission Presidents in order to understand how 'non-discrimination' was related to and shaped changing goals for European integration.

Julia Leschke is a PhD candidate at the Department of Government at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Her research seeks to explain how and when political actors strategically employ populism and which factors best explain the variation in voting for populist parties in European countries since 1960. To answer these questions Julia uses machine learning, causal inference and quantitative text analysis in a variety of European languages. Julia holds an MSc in Politics Research from the University of Oxford and a BA in Social Science from Humboldt University Berlin.

Kai Stern is a PhD candidate in political science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he received his master’s degree in 2018. He is interested in the effects of multilevel governance on firm strategy and performance. As a recipient of the Ernst Haas Fellowship, he will be working on a project about the firm-level distributional consequences of competition and state aid judgments at the Court of Justice of the European Union.
