Speaker:

Aram Hur

Postdoctoral Fellow at NYU's Wagner School of Public Service

Aram Hur is a Postdoctoral Fellow at NYU’s Wagner School of Public Service, as part of a university-wide cohort selected by the Provost. She recently wrote a Washington Post op-ed on the identity divide between North and South Korea.

Her research looks at how the politics of identity shapes the success and survival of democracy in East Asia and other contentious contexts. Specifically, she’s interested in how nationalism and group ethics explain why individuals support, withdraw, or even oppose their democracies. Her current work examines such questions mainly in the contexts of citizen compliance, participation, and the political integration of refugees and immigrants.

She received her Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University, M.P.P. from the Harvard Kennedy School, and B.A. from Stanford University. For more information, visit https://www.aramhur.com/
