Michael Albertus



I am an assistant professor of political science at the University of Chicago. My research interests include political regimes and redistribution, regime transitions and stability, politics under dictatorship, clientelism, and civil conflict.

My first book project, Autocracy and Redistribution: The Politics of Land Reform, is forthcoming at Cambridge University Press in the Cambridge Studies in Comparative Politics series. My research has been also published in the British Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, Economics & Politics, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Comparative Politics, International Studies Quarterly, and Latin American Research Review. I recently published an op-ed in the Washington Post's The Monkey Cage on the relationship between democracy and inequality.
