Michal Mochtak is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute of Political Science, University of Luxembourg. Prior to joining the university in October 2017, he was a Visiting Fulbright Scholar at the Department of Political Science, Yale University (2017), a Cvachovec Fellow at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto (2017), and a Research Fellow at the International Institute of Political Science, Masaryk University (2012-2017). He earned his Ph.D. at Masaryk University in 2015 by defending the thesis on the roots of electoral violence in the Western Balkans (with honors).

His research focuses on the challenges to democracy in Central and Eastern Europe with emphasis on the conflict potential of elections, modern forms of authoritarian rule and deconsolidation processes. At the University of Luxembourg, he is a member of a team working on a project titled “ELWar - Electoral Legacies of War: Political Competition in Postwar Southeast Europe” funded by the ERC Starting Grant, and led by Professor Josip Glaurdić.

Dr. Mochtak is the author of Electoral Violence in the Western Balkans. From Voting to Fighting and Back (Routledge; 2018), and the co-author of Challenges to Democracies in East Central Europe (Routledge; 2016). His papers on electoral violence and democratization have been published in a variety of international peer-reviewed political science journals (e.g. Terrorism and Political Violence, Democracy and Security, Journal of Southeast European, and Black Sea Studies, or World Political Science).
