Short presentation

I investigate electoral violence and how it influences democratization. My research investigates how citizens' attitudes toward - and participation in - democracy are affected by electoral violence, taking partisanship into account. I also explore how violence between supporters of different parties shape parties' propensity to give concessions in constitution-making processes, and how the outcomes of such reforms affect the development of electoral violence in their aftermath.

Keywords: democratization electoral violence political parties turkey citizens democratic attitudes
