Om Elin Bergman


I am a Ph.D. student at the Department of Political Science and the Quality of Government Institute since fall 2014. I have a Master’s degree in international relations from the University of Chicago and a politices magister degree in political science from Uppsala University, including an exchange year at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

Research interests

My research interests include clientelism, patronage, distributive policy, and welfare states in developing world democracies. Earlier research focused on foreign aid, fragile states, and security policy. As research associate at the University of Chicago’s Chicago Project on Security and Terrorism (CPOST), I analyzed insurgencies and governmental responses in the Middle East. I have also worked on fragile states and foreign aid at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs in Stockholm.

Current research

I write my dissertation on the political motives for transferring income to the poor (cash transfer programs) in contexts that have historically excluded the poor from the welfare state, specifically focusing on the interaction effect of the wealth of the median voter and the level of vote buying. The empirical analysis draws both on subnational variation across Brazil’s more than 5,500 municipalities and cross-country variation.
