Kendra Dupuy is a political economist focusing on how states use law to either advance or harm social welfare and public goods provision. Her ongoing research in this area examines how states have used laws to restrict civil society organizations as part of a growing global backlash against democracy, and the cross-national diffusion of community development requirements into mining laws to ensure the delivery of socio-economic benefits to mining affected communities. She holds a PhD in political science from the University of Washington. She is currently a member of the Breaking BAD project team.
