Christian Joppke is a German political sociologist, Professor and chair in General Sociology at the University of Bern, Switzerland.[1] He is the author of more than one hundred publications, monographs and manuscripts, and among the most widely cited authors in the field of immigration. Essentially a critic of multiculturalism, Joppke is self-defined "a reactionary liberal".[2]


Joppke holds a PhD degree from the University of California at Berkeley, United States. Previous appointments include the University of Southern California, the European University Institute, the University of British Columbia, and International University Bremen.[3]
