Christopher Kam (Ph.D. Rochester, 2002): I study comparative political institutions, maintaining a special interest in the nature and evolution of parliamentary democracy. I have just finished a book on intra-party politics in parliamentary government and have written several papers on ministerial selection and cabinet reshuffles, a topic on which I continue to work. I am increasingly interested in the historical development of institutions, and this interest is reflected in my current research on the evolution of free and fair elections in Victorian Britain. My CV contains to several of my papers and replication data sets; the links below connect you to web pages for courses that I teach.
