Jonathan Phillips is a researcher in the political economy of governance. His research seeks to identify why poor sub-national societies have sometimes succeeded in replacing dysfunctional clientelist systems with more programmatic policymaking and rapid poverty reduction. That research has included fieldwork and household surveys in Bihar state, India; Jigawa state, Nigeria; and Cearâ state, Brazil. He recently graduated with a Ph.D. in political science from Harvard University’s Department of Government and previously worked in Nigeria’s Federal Government to guide investments towards the Millennium Development Goals.
