Professor Riedl’s research interests include institutional development in new democracies, local governance and decentralization policy, and authoritarian regime legacies. Her current research explores why democratization in Africa has produced such a varied array of representative institutions and political structures by focusing on the causes of variation in party system institutionalization. Riedl recently published Bridging Disciplines, Spanning the Word: Approaches to Inequalities, Institutions, and Identities (Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies Monograph Series, 2006), which she co-edited with Sada Aksartova and Kirstine Mitchell.
