Yana Gorokhovskaia's research examines authoritarian endurance and the evolution of civil society in post-Soviet states, with particular attention to patterns of protest and electoral dynamics in Russia. She is currently pursuing two projects: the first investigates tactics used to mobilize vulnerable voters across Russia's regions and the second looks at the evolution of grassroots political organization and campaigning among the opposition in Moscow.
Her academic work and analytical commentary on contemporary Russian politics has appeared or is forthcoming in Post-Soviet Affairs, Russian Politics, Program on New Approaches to Research and Security in Eurasia (PONARS), Point and Counterpoint, Oxford Bibliographies in Political Science, Harriman Magazine, The Washington Post, Expert Opinions, EurasiaNet, The Huffington Post and others.
Dr. Gorokhovskaia teaches undergraduate courses on comparative politics, political institutions, and Russian politics. Syllabi are available on request.
