Abstract: "This dissertation advances our understanding of political imprisonment, which represents a globally widespread violation of individual's rights to liberty and freedom from arbitrary arrest. Empirical evidence on political imprisonment is largely absent in light of systematic data constraints and given that we lack explicit criteria on how to identify political prisoners consistently across political contexts. This dissertation tackles these challenges, generating novel empirical evidence on the determinants, on the duration, and on the consequences of political imprisonment in autocratic regimes.
