Kristian Gerner (born 1942) is a Swedish historian, author, expert on Eastern Europe and Professor of History at Lund University (since 2002). From 1994 to 2002, he was Professor of Eastern European History and Culture, also at Uppsala University. Gerner earned his doctorate at Lund in 1984.[1]

He is a board member of the Institute for Information on the Crimes of Communism.

On 4 December 2013, in Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, he commented on a clip sent on Russian state television where a Swedish children's programme was used as an example, saying that he recognized the arguments from Russian propaganda, calling them sexuality hostile and homophobic, and also saying that they represented a totally heinous atmosphere pursued by the Putin regime in tight coalition with the Russian Orthodox church.[2]
