WCED Lecture. Undue Process: Persecution and Punishment in Autocratic Courts
Fiona Shen-Bayh is an assistant professor of government and data science at the College of William & Mary and an affiliated researcher at the University of Bergen. She earned her PhD and MA in political science from the University of California, Berkeley and her BA in economics from Vassar College. From 2018-19, she was a postdoctoral fellow at the Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies at the University of Michigan. Her research focuses on the role that law and courts play in defending and upholding autocratic rule, and has been supported by the National Science Foundation and the Institute of International Studies at the University of California, Berkeley and published in World Politics. Her current book project examines why autocrats use courts to repress and the ramifications of such strategies on autocratic survival in the Global South. Focusing on sub-Saharan Africa, her work draws on a mixed-methods approach that combines qualitative and quantitative analyses and leverages a variety of data science tools.
