Welcome to my website. My name is Christian Adam and I am Assistant Professor at the Geschwister Scholl Institute of Political Science at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München.
Currently I enjoy a one-year stay at the Center for Advanced Studies of the LMU Munich. To find out about my research project, please click here.
In my work I mostly try to find ways to explain institutional (mis-)behavior and institutional change. In this context, I am particularly interested in the perceived legitimacy of democratic as well as legal institutions and in the perceived legitimacy of institutional change. If you want to find out more, please take a look at my PUBLICATIONS and the RESEARCH section on this website. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about my work.
The COURSES section provides some information on my general teaching activities and focus as well as on the courses, I currently teach.
