Christopher Claassen

I am a Lecturer in Politics in the School of Social and Political Sciences, University of Glasgow. Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Government at the University of Essex and I received my PhD in Political Science from Washington University in Saint Louis.

I conduct research on political behaviour, typically in the South African and American contexts. I focus on the following specific topics: hostility and violence towards immigrant and ethnic outgroups, political tolerance and democratic values, ideology and voting, latent trait and hierarchical models and the design and analysis of surveys and experiments.
