Good Authority fellows, from left to right: Emmanuel Balogun, Laura Bucci, Niambi Carter, Alexander Kustov, Brent Sasley, and Heather Sullivan.

We are thrilled to announce the first cohort of Good Authority fellows. We look forward to sharing with you their insights across the wide range of their expertise, from Black politics to labor issues to immigration, and offering more coverage and analysis on important events in Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America.

Meet our six new fellows:

Emmanuel Balogun is associate professor of political science at Skidmore College. He studies multilateralism in Africa, particularly the politics of African regional organizations. He is the author of Region-Building in West Africa: Convergence and Agency in ECOWAS (Routledge, 2022).

Laura C. Bucci is an assistant professor of political science at Saint Joseph’s University. She studies the politics and policy of organized labor, state politics, and political behavior. 

Niambi M. Carter is associate professor of political science at the University of Maryland. She studies Black politics, migration, and public opinion. She is the author of American While Black: African Americans, Immigration, and the Limits of Citizenship (Oxford University Press, 2019)

Alexander Kustov is an assistant professor of political science at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He studies democratic governance and public opinion, with a focus on managing immigration and ethnic tensions in high-income countries. He is the author of In Our Interest: How to Make Immigration Popular (forthcoming at Columbia University Press).

Brent E. Sasley is associate professor of political science at the University of Texas at Arlington. He studies Israeli politics, emotions in foreign policymaking, and international conflict. He is the co-author of Politics in Israel: Governing a Complex Society (Oxford University Press, 2017).

Heather Sullivan is assistant professor of government at Hamilton College. She studies Latin American politics and is interested in the ways state capacity shapes political outcomes. She has published a series of articles on protest and its management in the Journal of Conflict Resolution, Political Research Quarterly, Global Studies Quarterly, and Democratization.

We thank everyone who applied to be a Good Authority fellow. We will have another call for applications in late 2024.
