Allison McCulloch is Associate Professor of Political Science at Brandon University, Manitoba, Canada. Her research considers the politics of deeply divided societies, with a specific emphasis on the design of political power-sharing (consociational) institutions. This includes how power-sharing governments handle political crises, the incentive structures for ethnopolitical moderation and extremism that power-sharing offers, and how power-sharing arrangements can be made more inclusive of identities beyond the ethnonational divide. She is the author of Power-Sharing and Political Stability in Deeply Divided Societies, the co-editor of Power Sharing: Empirical and Normative Challenges (with John McGarry) and co-editor of the forthcoming Power-Sharing in Europe: Past Practice, Present Cases, Future Directions (with Soeren Keil). She currently serves as the Editor-in-Chief of Nationalism and Ethnic Politics.
