Arun R. Swamy, Ph.D.

Professor of Political Science

ABOUT

Dr. Swamy received his Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California (Berkeley). His research interests include democracy in developing countries, ethnicity and nationalism, political economy and corruption and state-building, and he has published on all these topics. His dissertation combined these various threads through an examination of populist appeals in Indian politics and he has since extended this argument to Asian politics generally. His special contribution to the study of populism has been the analysis of what he has termed "sandwich coalitions," an alliance of elites with marginalized groups against the middle.
