My PhD project explores legitimacy and civil war onset. The leading quantitative civil war studies typically associate civil war with opportunities and/or horizontal inequalities. Existing theories overlook the concept of legitimacy, including the importance of legitimacy in non-democratic regimes. The overall objective of my project is thus to explore if and how legitimacy affects the likelihood of civil war.
