Andrew Spath, RutgersWelcome. 

I am a Professorial Lecturer at the School of International Service at American University. I received my Ph.D. in political science from Rutgers University.

My teaching and research interests are in comparative politics with a specialization in the Middle East, particularly the Levant. My work concerns mobilization and repression, contentious politics, political violence, comparative authoritarianism, leader succession, and research methods.

I am also a Fellow in the Middle East Program at the Foreign Policy Research Institute.  I have lived and done research in the Middle East with Fulbright Hays, Fulbright IIEand NSEP Boren fellowships.
