Hans Lueders is a Hoover Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University. His research investigates how migration influences political participation and government responsiveness in different contexts. His current book project examines how domestic migration transforms electoral politics and civil society in rich democracies. This work links domestic migration to some of the key challenges that democratic societies are facing today: political polarization, democratic discontent, and the rise of populism.

In a second, coauthored book project, Lueders studies the social and political integration of domestic migrants in sub-Saharan Africa. This project draws scholarly attention to the social institutions that structure entry into and life in host communities.

In related work, Lueders researches how local immigration policies influence the integration of international immigrants in the United States. In particular, he asks how local immigration policies—both welcoming and exclusionary—influence the lives of immigrants and the communities in which they live.

Hans Lueders holds a PhD in political science from Stanford University and BA and MA degrees in Political Science from Heidelberg University, Germany. Prior to joining the Hoover Institution, he was a postdoctoral research associate at the Mamdouha S. Bobst Center for Peace and Justice at Princeton University and a postdoctoral scholar at the Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law at Stanford University’s Freeman Spogli Institute.

His research has been published in the American Political Science Review, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the Journal of Politics, Democratization, and the European Political Science Review, among other journals.
