Personal bio
Karen Jusko is an assistant professor of political science at Stanford University, and a faculty affiliate of Stanford's Europe Center and the Center for the Study of Poverty and Inequality. Jusko's research is motivated by questions about the origins of contemporary democratic politics in the U.S. and in Europe. Using survey research and historical census data, Jusko's current book project ties the different components of democratic representation -- participation, party politics, and the policy-making process -- to legislators' and political parties' electoral incentives. This research builds on Jusko's dissertation, which was awarded the Harold D. Laswell Prize for the best dissertation in the field of public policy. Jusko received her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. She has been a fellow at the Center for the Study Democratic Politics, at Princeton University. Juskoâ??s research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the European Science Foundation, and the Institute for Research in the Social Sciences at Stanford.
