Holger L. Kern

A photo of Holger Kern. I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Florida State University. Substantively, my research interests focus on the politics of authoritarian regimes, in particular transitions to and from democracy, populism, mass media, public opinion, and information control. In quantitative methodology, I'm interested in research design and causal inference in experiments and observational studies.

I study comparative and international political economy and authoritarian politics, with specialization in the politics of Russia and the post-communist countries. My research examines how politics and economics interact in "messy" environments, where institutions are weak, in transition, or nondemocratic. My research has been published in the American Journal of Political Science and the Journal of Politics.‚Äč More information on my background and research can be found on my website and on my Google Scholar profile.
