Professor Milada Anna Vachudova has published widely on democratization and political change in postcommunist Europe, on the enlargement of the European Union, and on the impact of international actors on domestic politics. She is an Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her book, Europe Undivided: Democracy, Leverage and Integration After Communism, published by Oxford University Press, explores how the leverage of an enlarging EU has influenced domestic politics and facilitated a convergence toward liberal democracy among credible future members of the EU. Europe Undivided was awarded the XIIth Stein Rokkan Prize for Comparative Social Science Research in 2006. Professor Vachudova is now working on political change and international engagement in the Western Balkans. She has held fellowships from many institutions including the European University Institute, the Center for European Studies at Harvard University, the Center for International Studies at Princeton University, the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University, and the National Science Foundation. She holds a BA from Stanford University. As a British Marshall Scholar and a member of St. Antony’s College, she completed a D.Phil. in the Faculty of Politics at the University of Oxford.
