Welcome to the official website of Jakob Schwörer, political scientist, born on 11 April 1988 in Lahr, Germany.
I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Political Science at Leuphana University Lüneburg and have been a visiting scholar at the Center for Research on Extremism (C-REX) at Oslo University and at the Department of Government at Uppsala University. I am a guest researcher at the University of San Francisco in Quito and a research fellow and supervisor of BA, MA and PhD students at the Cologne Forum for International Relations and Security Policy (KFIBS). I teach Introduction into Political Science, Comparative Political Science, German Political System, Populism, Methodology and Academic Writing. My research, which has won awards from several professional organisations, focuses on the communication strategies of populist and radical right parties and the behaviour of mainstream parties on various political issues in Europe and Latin America.
