Maria Victoria Murillo

Columbia University

Murillo will write a book exploring the impact of income inequality on voter expectations and the ability of political parties to respond equitably to rich and poor constituents. She argues that in democracies with high inequality, politicians are often torn between promoting policies that will serve the public good and responding to the narrower demands of particular groups. Murillo will utilize longitudinal data and in-depth interviews with elected politicians and political workers collected in Argentina, Peru, and Chile.
