Jason Todd

Assistant Professor of Political Science, Duke Kunshan University

His work spans the fields of American and comparative politics, including both democratic and authoritarian regimes. He is particularly interested in examining how political institutions shape law and policy, whether that is through the legislators who make them or the judges who interpret them. At Duke Kunshan, he teaches courses on the comparative politics of public policy, the global phenomenon of democratic erosion, and methods for program evaluation.
He has co-authored chapters for books published by Routledge and Cambridge University Press, and his work is forthcoming in The Journal of Politics. He is a member of the American, Southern, Midwest, and International Political Science Associations.
Todd has a B.A. in international studies from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where he focused on international politics, Asia, Mandarin and history, and a Ph.D. from Duke University.
