Colin Brown coordinates the Short-Term Kennedy Memorial Policy Fellows Program at CES which offers leading German policy makers, journalists and thinkers to spend time at the Center and engage with students and faculty.
also serves as Harvard College Fellow in Government. In 2015 he earned a PhD in
Political Science from the Department of Government at Harvard. His research
focuses on the factors that affect immigrant-background citizens'
representation in national, regional, and local legislatures. His dissertation
looked at variations in election in law in Germany and the Netherlands to
identify small variations with large, mostly unintended consequences in the
number of migration-background politicians elected to office. Currently, Brown
is working on several projects to understand how measures taken to increase
women's representation may have negative consequences for minority citizens
(and vice versa).
