Erik Gahner Larsen


I am a Lecturer at the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Kent and affiliated with the Q-Step Centre at Kent.

I defended my PhD in November 2016 at Department of Political Science and Public Management at the University of Southern Denmark. During my PhD, I spent a year as a visiting scholar at Department of Political Science at Duke University.

My research deals with topics related to public opinion on political issues. Specifically, I look at public opinion in relation to political behaviour, public policies and the media. For my published research on these topics, check out ‘Publications‘. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or inquiries.

This page is my personal webpage consisting of a blog, teaching and publication material. Whenever possible, I aim to include data in my posts (remember: without data you’re just another person with an opinion). All statements and opinions are my own.
