Comparative Politics


Dwayne Woods' research interests focus on different regions, however with a particular emphasis on Western Europe and Sub-Saharan Africa. Currently he is working on the rhetoric of identity populist movements like the Northern League in Italy and the Swiss People's Party and its relationship to international migration and globalization. In addition, his research explores on the effect of political regimes on distributive and redistributive outcomes regarding social policies such as education and health in Sub-Saharan Africa.


Professor Woods teaches Government of the World, Western European Society and Politics, the Political Economy of Rich and Poor Nations and Graduate seminars on Comparative Politics and Research Design.
