In her research Nicki explores the narratives of right-wing women, who join and actively support right-wing-parties in Germany and Austria. She is interested in exploring why women might support these parties, and their thoughts on issues of women's rights and equality issues in particular. What tensions are there between actively supporting a right-wing party and being a woman?
