Selene Campion

Selene Campion is a Ph.D. candidate in political science at Boston College, where she studies comparative politics. Her dissertation examines the electoral geography of minority representation in economically advanced democracies. In particular, her research investigates the role of ethnic segregation in shaping the descriptive and substantive representation outcomes for Muslims across Western Europe. Her research employs a multi-methods approach that leverages an original dataset of local representation outcomes and public goods distribution across Western Europe to investigate how segregation shapes party-voter linkages, with a particular focus on non-programmatic incorporation.

Selene's additional research interests include clientelism in advanced democracies, ethnic diversity and public goods provision, and the politics of housing.
