Assistant Professor Volha Charnysh from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology will be joining us for our first virtual Comparative Politics Workshop. Her featured work is titled "The Fiscal Logic of Outgroup Bias: No Salvation without Taxation".

In 2017-2018, Charnysh was a fellow at the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance at the Princeton University Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. She received her PhD in Government from Harvard University in May 2017.

Charnysh's book project, Migration, Diversity, and Economic Development, examines the long-run effects of forced migration in the aftermath of World War II in Eastern Europe. Her other ongoing projects examine the politics of authoritarian regimes, the effects of wartime property transfers, and generational transmission of political attitudes and behavior. Charnysh's regional focus is on Europe and Eurasia. Her work combines statistical methods, including spatial and content analysis, with extensive field and archival research.
