Holger L. Kern

A photo of Holger Kern. I am an Assistant 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 democracy, anti-regime collective action, mass media, public opinion, and censorship. In quantitative methodology, I am interested in research design and causal inference in experiments and observational studies. More information on my background and research can be found on my website and on my Google Scholar profile.
