Barry Driscoll

Assistant Professor

I'm originally from Galway, Ireland and made it to Grinnell by way of Leiden (Holland), Copenhagen, Washington, London, Oslo, and finally Wisconsin, either working in international development or researching themes in comparative politics. My work is on the political economy of development and the state in Africa, focusing on decentralization, local governance, taxation, state capacity, and political parties. 

I am on research leave for 2019/20. I will be returning in Aug 2020.
