Anouk van Leeuwen defended her dissertation, entitled Protest! Studies on Protest Politicization, Perceived Protest Atmosphere, and Protest Policing, today and I had the honor of serving on her panel.

In an impressive set of studies, Anouk explored how demonstrators experience protest atmospheres,  which factors influence these experiences, and how they influence protestors' willingness to join street protests in the future. In addition, she examined the determinants of the degree of protest politicization.

Congratulations on a very strong defense, Anouk!
