    Media Freedom and the Escalation of State Violence

    Wenn Regierungen mit politischer Gewalt konfrontiert sind, reagieren sie in der Regel ebenfalls mit Gewalt. Doch nicht alle Regierungen eskalieren unter solchen Umständen. Um die Eskalation staatlicher Gewalt zu verstehen, müssen vor allem die entstehenden Kosten untersucht werden, argumentieren die Autor:innen.

    Grist to the Mill of Subversion: Strikes and Coups in Counterinsurgencies

    Why are acts of organised resistance associated with military coups? Disentangling different types of resistance, the authors analyse whether and how strikes, demonstrations, riots, and guerrilla attacks affect the military’s disposition and ability to stage a coup during counterinsurgencies.

    Institutions in Autocratic Regimes

    Leuphana Universität Lüneburg Lüneburg

    In today's global political climate, better understanding authoritarianism is of renewed importance. After decades of decline, authoritarianism appears to be on the rise. Over one-third of all countries and 40 percent of the world's population leave under some form of authoritarian rule. This third wave of authoritarianism is characterized by regimes' ability to adapt and consolidate institutions in a way that no longer follows preconceived authoritarian stereotypes. The seminar focus on understanding how authoritarian politics works. During the semester we will study who the key actors are within authoritarian regimes, how they come to power, what strategies they use to survive, and how they fall. We will engage
    with state of the art literature and empirically based analyses on authoritarian politics.
