Angelina Atanasova is a PhD Candidate at KU Leuven, Belgium. Her doctoral research focuses on the role of non-state actors in the process of judicialization of two policy domains at EU level – disability and gender equality.

She holds a MA degree in Public Policy from the Central European University, Hungary and a MA degree in International Relations and Security Studies from Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski, Bulgaria.

Previously, she worked as a Research Manager for the Research&Social Policy department at Ecorys, where she was managing projects with focus on social inclusion, employment and education, including evaluations for the European Commission (DG EAC and DG EMPL). Previously, she worked as a Researcher at the Euthority, an ERC-funded project, investigating patterns of judicial dialogue between domestic courts in the EU and the CJEU.

Her previous experience includes legal and policy work in the areas of equality and anti-discrimination, as well as human rights and democracy for the Open Society European Policy Institute (Belgium), the Václav Havel Foundation Forum 2000 (Czech Republic) and the Center for Policy Studies, Central European University (Hungary).

Her main research interests focus on civil society mobilization and litigation, judicial dialogue, equality and anti-discrimination, and more generally sociology of law.
