Welcome to the official website of Jakob Schwörer, political scientist, born on 11 April 1988 in Lahr, Germany.
I am a policy advisor at the Friedrich Ebert Foundation in Stockholm, working on populism, party politics, the mainstreaming of illiberal discourses and security policy in Western Europe and beyond. I have been postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Political Science at Leuphana University Lüneburg and 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 lecturer 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 has won awards from several professional organisations.
