Konstantin Gavras holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Public Law and a Master’s Degree in Political Science both from the University of Mannheim. Konstantin gained broad research experiences on voting behavior during his work as a research assistant for the GLES (German Longitudinal Election Study) at the Chairs of Comparative Political Behavior and Political Psychology. In his Master thesis he integrated the influence of institutional aspects into the process of political communication and tested it using both macro- and micro-level data on several European countries and their citizens. Konstantin aims to integrate contextual influences in the classical theories of voting behavior, building bridges from Political Sociology to Comparative Politics.
Political Behavior and Attitudes
Epistemology and Causal Identification
Why I chose the University of Mannheim and in particular the GESS:
I already gained broad experiences at the University of Mannheim and enjoy staying here as the University provides me with a familiar but also professional environment. Additionally, the University of Mannheim and the CDSS have a great reputation giving me the opportunity to receive one of the best educations in Political Science in Germany.
