Biography
Bonnie Meguid is an expert on how mainstream political party strategic behavior affects the trajectory of niche parties (e.g., green, radical right and ethnoterritorial parties). Her book on this subject, Party Competition between Unequals: Strategies and Electoral Fortunes in Western Europe, was published in June 2008 by Cambridge University Press. She also studies the micro-level effects of issue salience and issue ownership on voter choice, and the causes and consequences of institutional reform focusing on political decentralization and compulsory voting.
