Dr Charlotte Haberstroh’s research focuses on Politics of Education Policies, with a particular interest in primary and secondary school reforms in Western Europe. Her current research projects shed light on how the ubiquitous policy promise of equal educational opportunities translates into concrete policy problems that represent distributional trade-offs to partisan policy makers. Her doctoral dissertation on The Politics of Equal Opportunities in Education: Partisan Governments and School Choice Reform in Sweden, England and France 1980-2010 was awarded the Linz-Rokkan Prize at the European University Institute in 2017. Her new project focuses on teacher labour markets.
Dr Haberstroh was a Postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Social Policy and Intervention and Nuffield College at the University of Oxford. She received her PhD at the European University Institute, Florence in 2016. She is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
