Postdoctoral Research Fellow, ETHNICGOODS project, ERC
Chun-Ying Wu is joining IBEI as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow for the ETHNICGOODS project (ERC, Consolidator Grant), coordinated by Dr. Matthias vom Hau. His research interests include ethnic politics, political behavior, and political regime. He received a Ph.D in Government from the University of Texas at Austin. His dissertation examines how political regimes affect minority language policy making in Taiwan (historical analysis) and Southeast Asia (time-series cross-section data analysis). Currently, he is working on his co-authored projects that analyze ethnic conflicts in three Southeast Asian countries (Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines), symbolic versus pragmatic political attitudes in Taiwan, political values of Southeast and East Asian citizens, and how minority language recognition affects political trust of linguistic minority people in dictatorships.
