Professor Hyde’s research interests include international influences on domestic politics, elections in developing countries, international norm creation, and the use of natural and field experimental research methods. Her current research explores the effects of international democracy promotion efforts, with a particular focus on international election observation. She has served as an international observer with The Carter Center and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe for elections in Albania, Indonesia, Nicaragua, and Venezuela, and has worked for the Democracy Program at The Carter Center. We talk with her about her book, The Pseudo-Democrats Dilemma: Why Election Monitoring Became an International Norm.
