Michael Hendricks published in the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Politics
Assistant Professor of Politics and Government Michael Hendricks has a new publication in the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Politics (Oxford University Press). The article is titled “Resource Wealth and Political Decentralization in Latin America.” The article will be reprinted in January 2021 in the Oxford Encyclopedia of Latin American Politics (Oxford University Press).
The article examines the political conditions that make some regions or provinces more prone to protest. These political conditions are tied to electoral and partisan dynamics and draw attention to the political context or environment in which protests emerge. Focusing on electoral and partisan dynamics can help explain the variation of protest across geography and time, and in particular, why similar resource-abundant provinces within the same country experience different levels of protest.
