Dr Chow, Wilfred 趙為民
His dissertation focuses on the international political economy of authoritarian regimes. His current research seeks to explain how leadership change in authoritarian regimes shapes an authoritarian country’s foreign policy in trade and conflict. His research combines both formal theory and statistical methods to show that when dictators are vulnerable to elite-led internal coups, these leaders behave in paradoxical manner: they are more likely to liberalize trade and cooperate with other countries but also appear more belligerent. These results have important implications for policymakers wishing to understand the domestic motivations behind autocratic foreign policy.
