Professor Dunning studies comparative politics, political economy, and methodology. His book, Crude Democracy: Natural Resource Wealth and Political Regimes contrasts the democratic and authoritarian effects of natural resource wealth.  His current work on ethnic and other cleavages draws on field and natural experiments and qualitative fieldwork in Latin America, India, and Africa.  Dunning has written on a range of methodological topics, including econometric corrections for selection effects and the use of natural experiments in the social sciences.  We talk with Professor Dunning about a study he recently completed on voting in Mali.
