The faculty members listed below have a strong interest in the activities of the Political Economy and Government program. In most cases they are advising current students. With the chairman of the PhD program, Torben Iversen, they form an executive committee that oversees the current structure of the doctoral program, and recommends change as the program grows. Note that other faculty at Harvard Kennedy School, the Economics Department, and the Government Department at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences also advise students in this program.
