Jana Belschner is a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the Institute of Comparative Politics and at the Chr. Michelsens Institute. Her research focuses on political representation, elections, and political parties. Specifically, Jana's work investigates the political representation of youth and young generations; focusing on links between the political participation of young people, their presence in formal political institutions, and the substantive representation of young generations' interests.

In her research, she uses both qualitative and quantitative methods; such as econometric modelling techniques, social network analysis, and quantitative text analysis.
