Please join the Comparative Politics Workshop for a session with Volha Charnysh, Assistant Professor of Political Science at MIT. (Session Description TBA)

Volha Charnysh joined MIT’s Department of Political Science in the fall of 2018.

Dr. Charnysh’s research focuses on historical political economy, legacies of violence, nation- and state-building, and ethnic politics. Her book project examines the long-run effects of forced migration in the aftermath of World War II in Eastern Europe, synthesizing several decades of micro-level data collected during a year of fieldwork in Poland, funded by the Social Science Research Council and Center for European Studies.
