Sandra Kröger is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Exeter (UoE, UK). She also is the Director of the Centre for European Governance at UoE and chairs the ECPR research network on differentiated integration in the EU.
Sandra is interested in topics to do with democracy in the EU and with European integration. She has been involved in a number of projects on soft law in the EU. More recently, she has looked at electoral and non-electoral forms of political representation, on the one hand, and the norms that should be underlying the institutional design of representative institutions in the EU, on the other. Most recently, she has become interested in differentiated integration on the one hand and lying in politics on the other, and she is also developing a research interest in smartphones and digital democracy.
Sandra holds degrees in social science (Humboldt-University Berlin, Paris VIII) and Interdisciplinary France studies (University Freiburg) and received her Doctorate at the University of Göttingen. Prior to joining UoE, she was a lecturer at the University of Bremen (2008-2011), and previously read at the University Göttingen and the Humboldt University Berlin. She has held a Marie Curie fellowship (2011-2013) as well as fellowships at the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg in Delmenhorst (2013-14) and at the EUI (2018-2019).
