“Leader Tenure: A Wide-Angle Investigation” by Professor John Gerring


Gerring's talk will present results from a large project focused on leadership tenure - or the time leaders serve in their positions. The project studies leadership tenure across sectors (public, civic, private), across countries and time. 

John Gerring (PhD, University of California at Berkeley, 1993) is Professor of Government at University of Texas at Austin, where his teaching and research centers on methodology and comparative politics. He is co-editor of Strategies for Social Inquiry, a book series at Cambridge University Press, and serves as co-PI of Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) and the Global Leadership Project (GLP). Gerring has written extensively on social science methods and the case study as a scientific method.
