Global Political Development in Long-Term Perspective

This “project” is more of a collection of past and ongoing work with focus on the political long-term development in global perspective. For instance, I have compiled a new, comprehensive data set on the impact of colonialism in Africa and Asia with Patrick Ziltener and Daniel Kuenzler. Currently, I do research on the relationship of the Neolithic Transition and state formation as well as the onset of colonialism.
