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.
