Room 6109, Law School

Yulia Khalikova is a postdoctoral fellow at CREECA. Her primary research focuses on the role of law and judicial institutions in authoritarian regimes with an application to Russia. Within this paradigm, she addresses such topics as judicial behavior and dissenting opinions at the Russian Constitutional Court, self-legitimacy of lawyers, and citations to international law by domestic courts. Her collaborative projects explore how autocrats legitimize their rule by abusing international concepts, and how the prospects of political change influence individual behavior in Russia. Part of her dissertation research received a best paper award for junior researchers organized by the Standing Group on Law & Courts at the 2021 European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR).

Yulia will receive PhD in Political Science at the University of Bremen in December 2021. She holds a MA in Sociology (2017) and Diploma in Law (2015) from the Higher School of Economics, Moscow. During her studies, she was a visiting student at KU Leuven, New University of Lisbon, and the International Center for the Study of Institutions and Development in Moscow.
