Daniel Bochsler

Associate Professor

Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Copenhagen; Assistant Professor of Comparative Politics (Democratisation) at the University of Zurich / Centre for Democracy Studies Aarau.


In my research, I investigate how political institutions, esp. elections/election rules and power-sharing, affect political inclusion, polarisation and cooperation in heterogeneous societies. I specialise on countries undergoing transition towards democracy, on Central and Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union, and in particular on Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia and Macedonia.

Research interests: Comparative Politics; Political Institutions; Democratisation; Democracy; Ethnic politics; Elections; Electoral Systems; Central and Eastern Europe; Post-Communism; Switzerland.
