Emmerich Davies

I am an Assistant Professor of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, a Faculty Associate at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs and Center for International Development, and a co-convener of the Brown-Harvard-M.I.T. Joint Seminar on South Asian Politics.

I study the political economy of development with a regional focus on South Asia, with comparative work in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa. I am interested in the effects of education on citizen-state relations, political participation and socialization, and bureaucratic politics. My work has been published in Comparative Political Studies and Governance and has won awards from the Comparative International Education Society.

I received my Ph.D. and M.A. in political science from the University of Pennsylvania, and my B.A. in political science and economics from Stanford University.

My published research and works in progress are here.

I teach classes on education politics, the use of data in international development, and the political economy of development.
