Anagnostou has coordinated two large research projects funded by the European Commission 6th Framework Program and has also participated as a partner in several other EU research projects under the 6th and 7th Framework Programs, as well as in Horizon 2020. Her articles have appeared in several book chapters and journals such as Journal of Law and Society, European Journal of International Law, West European Politics, Southeast European Politics, International Journal of Human Rights, Canadian Journal of Law and Society, and European Public Law, among others.
