Yesola Kweon is assistant professor of Political Science at Utah State University. Her research interests are international and comparative political economy, political behavior, and public policy with a focus on Western Europe and East Asia. Within these broad fields, she studies how new forms of inequality associated with post-industrialization affect the behavior of political actors and in turn, reshape public policy. Recent projects focus on the politics of three important socio-economic transformations in advanced democracies: 1) labor market dualization; 2) gender divisions, and 3) population aging. In this context, she examines the redistributive attitudes and electoral choices of newly marginalized groups as well as the policy responses of political elites. Her work has appeared in journals like Political Research QuarterlyElectoral StudiesInternational InteractionsWest European Politics among others. Her co-authored book, Democracy Under Siege?, is published with Oxford University Press.
