Professor of International Political Studies, Witten/Herdecke University

Nils-Christian Bormann is a Political Scientist in the Department of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Witten/Herdecke University and he is affiliated with the Identity & Conflict Lab at the University of Pennsylvania. Previously, he has held positions at the University of Essex and University of Exeter. His research focuses on the causes of elite cooperation and violent conflict. I investigate, for example, why political elites form multi-ethnic coalitions, how economic inequality between ethnic groups develops over time, and what effects international intervention has on the stability of ethnic power sharing.
