Robert Grey



While his initial research agenda was on mass attitudes and behavior in Africa, over the last decade his research has focused on comparable phenomena in Russia. In particular, he is concerned with mass support (or lack thereof) for Russian democratization, and with Russian nationalism. He has published in such journals as the Journal of Modern African Studies and Slavic Review. He recently edited a book, Democratic Theory and Post-Communist Change. He strongly believes in involving students in his research, and has published work co-authored with students. Mr. Grey is deeply involved in cross-disciplinary work, and is a member of the Russian, Central, and Eastern European Studies Concentration and the East Asian Studies Concentration.
