Welcome!

My name is Sirus Dehdari and I am a Ph.D. in Economics from the Institute for International Economic Studies. Starting Fall 2018, I will join the CONPOL project at Uppsala University (Department of Government). I do research in applied microeconometrics, and political and institutional economics, in particular voting for far-right parties, national identity, and political participation.

You can find my doctoral thesis, Radical Right, Identity, and Retaliation, here, and my CV here.
