The statistical component explores the dynamics between public protest and terrorist attacks, in an effort to explain which issues on the Left's agenda do terrorists respond to in order to harness support.

  • EKINS, EMILY MCCLINTOCK - emilyekins@ucla.edu (Political Science PhD Graduate Student) Subfield: Political Economy, American Politics, Comparative Politics, Methods - My research focuses on American Politics and American Political Economy. Recent events including the 2008 financial crisis and the response of state and local governments to the crisis have highlighted important areas of future research. My recent work has focused on the recently emergent Tea Party movement which has become an influential force in the midterm elections. I have focused on trying to quantify the beliefs many Tea Party identifiers share and what has primarily driven the Tea Party phenomenon. I have also been studying causes of the 2008 financial crisis. Specifically I am studying the impact of credit rating agency oligopolies propped up through government regulation. Additional research focuses on the impact of economic expectations on political behavior. Specifically, how does ones' expectations of future income mobility affect their political preferences and ultimately for whom they vote. For example, if one has a genuine belief in what many refer to as the "American Dream"--that upward economic mobility is possible--what effect does this have on political preferences and voting. My previous research has focused on campaign spending strategy in the 2008 election, deregulation in the 1970s and 1980s, public opinion, survey research, and quantitative methods.

Statistics) Subfield: Comparative Politics and Political Methodology - Dissertation: The Politics and the Measurement of Health and Health Inequality in The Developing World This project investigates the effect of democratization on the provision of health and on health inequality using new data, which include detailed individual records of 5.5 million births since 1970 from 52 developing countries that account for 80 % of the premature death toll in the world. I find that democratization did reduce the child mortality gap between rich and poor in some of the poorest countries, but has no or little effect in middle-income countries. I also extend existing methods to measure total inequality in child mortality over time.
