Welcome to the official website of Jakob Schwörer, political scientist, born on 11 April 1988 in Lahr, Germany.
I am postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Political Science at Leuphana University Lüneburg and have been 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 guest researcher at San Francisco University in Quito and research fellow and mentor 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, the political system of Germany, populism, methodological courses and academic writing. My research has received awards from several professional associations and focuses on communication strategies of populist and radical right parties and on mainstream parties' positional and discursive reaction.
