Polarization, Representation and Turnout in Democracies



Fabio Ellger is a doctoral candidate at the Berlin Graduate School of Social Sciences and at the Chair of Comparative Political Behavior at Humboldt University Berlin. Moreover, he works as a scientific assistant in the “COALITIONPOLICY” project (funded by the German Science Foundation).

His main interest is political behavior in democracies. More specifically, he uses quantitative methods and experimental approaches to investigate the linkage of political parties and citizens, as well as questions on participation and representation in democratic contexts.

In the course of his studies, he worked as a student assistant for the Manifesto Project at the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB) and at Potsdam’s Chair of Comparative Politics.
