Prof. Dr. Christian Martin
Max Weber Chair for German and European Studies at New York University

Christian Martin is a professor of political science and chair of comparative politics at the University of Kiel, Germany. Martin studied political science at the University of Konstanz and holds a doctorate from there (2002). Martin was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Konstanz and at the Max-Planck-Institute in Jena (2003-2004). He was an assistant professor at the University of Hamburg (2004-2008) and a Visiting Assistant Professor at Northwestern University (2008-2011).

His research and teaching interests focus on the political conditions and consequences of globalization and regional integration. He has published on the effects of globalization for electoral participation and, most recently, on the incentive to adopt more proportional voting systems in a highly globalized environment. Martin has also published on the interaction of domestic conditions and external influences in spill-over processes. His current research project is on backlashes against globalization and EU integration with a focus on inequality and redistribution.

Among other journals, Martin has published in Public Choice, West European Politics, Electoral Studies, Constitutional Political Economy, and International Studies Quarterly. His book on democracy and foreign economic liberalization in developing countries was published with VS publishers (Wiesbaden).
