    Arabs Want Democracy—But Not With Corruption

    Despite the costly efforts of Arab activists and citizens over the past decade of the Arab Uprisings, today no Arab state can claim to be fully democratic. Two countries, Egypt and Tunisia, traveled farthest down the path towards democracy, and Tunisia witnessed ten years of democratic elections–but today neither country protects the rights of citizens […]

    A tale of two elections: how “money politics” is shaped by national context

    May 2022 in the Philippines. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. was running for president of the Philippines, in tandem with Sara Duterte, daughter of the term-limited incumbent, Rodrigo Duterte.

    The challenges of being a woman on the ticket in 2020

    California Senator Kamala Harris’s selection for the vice-presidential spot is an historic moment. Selecting Harris as a running mate appears to be a pretty reasonable choice for Joe Biden.
