Sven Kosanke

I am a doctoral researcher at the Chair of Comparative Politics at the University of Greifswald. In my thesis, I examine the intervening effects of electoral systems on intra-party cohesion. Currently, I am a lecturer at the university and give lessons with the focus on comparative electoral system research. Furthermore, I am a member at the research project Consequences of Electoral System Change.
