Assistant Professor, Northern Arizona University
You have reached the website of Stephen Meserve, an assistant professor of political science at Northern Arizona University---I recently moved from a position at Texas Tech to here in the Arizona mountains. My expertise lies in comparative politics, with specific research interests in comparative political economy, comparative legislative politics, measurement, and a regional expertise in Europe. I am active in a variety of projects within these areas, exploring issues related to the political economy of development (distributive politics, clientelism, democratization), digital politics, and legislative politics in the European Parliament. You can learn more about my projects using the research projects menu which features links to paper manuscripts and conference papers.
Papers from my projects appear in a wide variety of journals (see CV) while data and replication files from my publications are available separately on Dataverse. At NAU, I teach Ph.D and undergraduate level political science classes in my fields of interest.
