About Taeko Hiroi

I am Professor of Political Science at The University of Texas at El Paso. My research areas include political institutions, democratization, political (in)stability, legislative politics, electoral systems, governance and accountability, and comparative and international political economy. I am particularly interested in governability, regime change, quality of democracy, accountability, and representation. My research seeks to shed light into these important questions by examining how various formal and informal political institutions and economic structures create different incentives and constraints for political actors, and how these differing conditions generate varying social, economic, and political outcomes.
