and teach on authoritarian states, transitional justice, Asian politics, and
international human rights. My work has been published in Studies in Conflict & Terrorism, Human Rights Quarterly, Journal of Peace Research, International Studies Review, Communist & Post-Communist Studies, and Democratization. My book, The Authoritarian Public Sphere, was published in 2017.
Previously I was a lecturer at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and I have been a visiting scholar at Columbia University and the Berlin Social Science Center. I earned my dual Ph.D. in political science and peace studies at the University of Notre Dame, a master's degree in human rights at the London School of Economics, and my undergraduate degree from Willamette University.
My research interests grew out of my prior professional work with the non-profit International Debate Education Association (IDEA). For several years I worked in over 20 countries in Asia, Europe, the Middle East and Africa to teach debate and promote it among young people as a tool to improve critical thinking and advocacy.You can reach me via email at email@example.com or follow me on Twitter @AlexDukalskis.
