Biography

Matthias Krönke is a researcher in the Afrobarometer Analysis Unit. He completed his PhD in political science at the University of Cape Town (UCT) in South Africa in 2023.
He studies Comparative Politics and Political Behavior, focusing on how political institutions enhance democratic accountability and facilitate human development. Specifically, he is interested in the internal organisation of political parties as well as legislatures, and how their representatives affect processes of democratisation and development. In a related line of inquiry, he also focuses on how governments, political parties, and citizens deal with the challenge of climate change.
