  • Date: October 23, 2020
  • Venue: RIETI


  • Speaker: Charles CRABTREE (Assistant Professor, Department of Government, Dartmouth College)

    Charles Crabtree is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Government at Dartmouth College. He received a BA from the University of Colorado; MAs from Northwestern University, Pennsylvania State University, and the University of Michigan; and a PhD in political science from the University of Michigan in 2019. His research focuses on fairness in politics, with applications to the study of discrimination, repression, human rights, and immigration. Specifically, he examines under what circumstances political actors and institutions treat members of the public differently based on their political views or personal demographics, and how the public views differential treatment. Understanding this is important as perceptions of fairness are fundamental to public evaluations of institutional legitimacy across regimes. Methodologically, he is interested in research design, experiments, and using computational tools to better understand the social world. He has published work on these topics in the American Journal of Political Science, the British Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics [2], and Political Analysis, among other journals.
