2019.09.10 | Birgit Kanstrup

My name is Laurits Florang Aarslew and I’m a new PhD student at the department. In 2017, I completed my Master’s degree in Political Science from AU. From 2017 to 2019 I worked in the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Interior.


My PhD project concerns the role of masses and protests in electoral authoritarian regimes.

Specifically, under what conditions elections are likely to spur popular uprisings and when such uprisings are likely to destabilize regimes.


My supervisors are Jakob Tolstrup and Svend-Erik Skaaning.


I’m in office 1332/223.

I look forward to getting started and meeting all of you.
