New Academic Appointment for PPE at WarwickThursday 31 May 2018
The Department of Politics and International Studies (PAIS) announces new academic appointments.
PAIS are delighted to announce that Professor Anderson has been appointed as a joint Professor in Politics and Economics and he will be the new Director of PPE at Warwick. His research focuses on the micro-foundations of markets and democracy and examines how economic and political structures shape citizens’ judgments and behaviours. He has written on the popularity of governments and the legitimacy of political institutions, the link between welfare states, income inequality, and citizen behaviour, and the political behaviour of immigrants. Most recently, Chris was Professor of Government and Labor Relations at Cornell University; currently, he is also a Visiting Senior Fellow at the London School of Economics. Thanks to all PAIS colleagues who attended Chris’ job talk in January and to Vera Troeger and Jeremy Smith for representing Economics on the appointment panel chaired by the Provost.
