research on authoritarianism, bringing together scholars based in the United States and Oxford with similar research interests. This event will also provide an
opportunity for graduate students in Oxford to present their work to and receive
feedback from, leading scholars in the field, including Jennifer Gandhi (author
of Political Institutions under Dictatorship) and Rory Truex (author of Making Autocracy Work).
