My PhD research is on the (perceived) atmosphere of street demonstrations. All actors involved with protest (demonstrators, organizers, police and even the media) refer to the 'atmosphere' of demonstrations, but the concept has not been empirically studied before. For my study I apply both quantitative and qualitative research methods.

The project is integrated in the international collaborative research project called 'Caught in the act of protest: Contextualizing Contestation' (CCC). The CCC-project gathers data on 80-100 street demonstrations in eight countries: Belgium, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
