Robert E. Bohrer

Rob Bohrer began teaching at Gettysburg College in 1998. In addition to the department's Research Methods course, Prof. Bohrer teaches Comparative Politics, with specialization in Europe and issues related to democratic governance. His research examines the intersections between democratic institutions and performance in established and transitional democracies, the role of electoral laws in shaping party systems, the development of devolved institutions in the United Kingdom and the role political institutions play in mitigating and channeling societal conflict. His current research focuses on changes occurring in Europe since 1945, especially with the advent of the European Union, the role of women in politics and the role of civil conflicts on the development in European states.
