Johannes Gerschewski Receives the 2024 Thomas Mann Fellowship

Our member Johannes Gerschewski receives the 2024 Thomas Mann fellowship together with 12 other fellows.

Johannes Gerschewski, academic coordinator of the SCRIPTS Theory Network, will become a fellow of the Thomas Mann House in Los Angeles in 2024. He works at the intersection of comparative politics and political theory. His latest book, The Two Logics of Autocratic Rule, examines the conditions autocracies must meet in order to survive.

In his joint project with Pola Lehmann (WZB), “The (Lost) Virtue of Compromise,” they will examine the value of compromise in democratic societies. Under the theme “Democracy and Vulnerability,” thirteen outstanding individuals will work on their project in 2024 and engage in exchange with U.S. experts and the public.
