Dr. Alison E. Post
Associate Professor of Political Science and Global Metropolitan Studies
University of California, Berkeley

My research lies at the intersection of comparative urban politics and comparative political economy, focusing on Latin America and the developing world more broadly.  
It examines the political and institutional factors affecting vital urban services.  Published and ongoing research focuses on the politics of regulation and business-government relations, decentralization, welfare state politics, and the effects of increasing government transparency.   I am the author of Foreign and Domestic Investment in Argentina: The Politics of Privatized Infrastructure (Cambridge University Press, 2014) and articles in the Annual Review of Political Science, Comparative Politics, Governance, Perspectives on Politics, Politics & Society, Studies in Comparative International Development, World Development, and other outlets.  I have been named a Clarence Stone Scholar (an early career award) by the Urban Politics Section of the American Political Science Association, and received U.C. Berkeley's campus-wide Carol D. Soc award for mentoring graduate students.
