My name is Andrej Kokkonen, and I am a new associate professor at the department. Before joining this department I worked at the Department of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg, where I also received my PhD in 2011 for a dissertation on how family policies affect women’s fertility decisions.

Currently I‘m working on a research project on how successions and succession arrangements affect political stability (coups and wars) and state building efforts in autocratic regimes, with a special focus on monarchies. I’m also conducting research on why people vote for radical right parties, and on what consequences radical right parties’ electoral successes have for citizens’ political attitudes. For example, I recently finished a research project on gender difference in support for radical right parties.

My research has been published, or is forthcoming, in journals such as, the American Political Science Review, British Journal of Political Science, British Journal of Sociology, and European Sociological Review.

I’m looking forward to get to know all of you at the department!
