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]
