Short presentation

PhD Candidate. I investigate electoral violence and how it influences democratization trajectories. My focus is on the actor-based dynamics of election-related violence. I research how citizens' attitudes toward democracy are affected by electoral violence as well as how electoral violence influences the development of democratic institutions, focusing on constitutional reform. I also investigate how the outcomes of such reforms affect the development of electoral violence in their aftermath.

Keywords: democratization electoral violence political violence autocratization citizens democratic attitudes
