Om Amy Alexander


Assistant Professor (tenure track) in the Department of Political Science and researcher in the Quality of Government Institute


I am an Assistant Professor at the Quality of Government Institute in the Department of Political Science. For the next five years my research will focus heavily on the role gender equality plays in democracies’ achievements in various aspects of quality of government. I will work on this research as part of a team of researchers working on multiple aspects of democratic performance and quality of government headed by Bo Rothstein through the PERDEM project. In this capacity, I will pursue a line of research that evaluates:

- global variation in historical patterns of gender equality, such as early household formation patterns to establish whether countries’ achievements in quality of government today can be rooted in these early patterns of equality;

- whether the political empowerment of women improves quality of government and through which mechanisms the influence operates;

- the variation in democracies’ efforts to develop institutions, rights and policies that empower gender diversity.
In addition to my work with PERDEM, I will also pursue a larger women and politics’ research agenda that focuses on the sources of women’s political empowerment and how this empowerment affects political representation, social values and democratization across the globe. Current projects evaluate:

- the effects of growth in women’s political representation on women’s political knowledge, political engagement, and beliefs concerning women’s suitability as political leaders;

- the international women’s movement and institutional solutions to cultural challenges to women’s empowerment;

- gender inequality and women’s effective use of democracy;

- women’s political ambition.

I have published on these and related topics in several peer-reviewed journals including Comparative Politics, the European Sociological Review and Politics and Gender.
