Karol Czuba


Karol Czuba is a doctoral candidate (ABD) in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto. His PhD project explores the microfoundations of state-making through the lens of strategic interactions between political agents involved in the process of extension of state power in the dryland region of Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda.
His other recent research projects include an evidence synthesis of the impacts of food assistance on pastoralist communities (with T.J. O’Neill and A.P. Ayala: http://policy-practice.oxfam.org.uk/publications/the-impact-of-in-kind-food-assistance-on-pastoralist-livelihoods-in-humanitaria-620188) and an experimental study of the relationship between political cleavages and redistributive preferences (with A. Davidson, M. Lesch, M. Héroux-Legault, T. Whyte, Z. Asaf, and A. Porisky, forthcoming in Regional and Federal Studies).
