I am an associate professor of political science at Northwestern University. My main fields of interest are the politics of postcommunist Europe, the quality of democracy, the causes and consequences of formal institutions, and political behavior. I also write about popular culture in Eastern Europe and getting a better education.

This site contains copies of most of my article-length writings and translations, information about my books, syllabi for classes, and some personal information about me. I'm always happy to receive comments - good, bad, or ugly. Email me at aroberts@northwestern.edu.

You can find my cv here (link).
