Elizabeth Carter

Elizabeth "Betsy" Carter is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of New Hampshire. She earned her Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of California Berkeley, and she was a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne, Germany. Her dissertation focused on producer organization and the creation of value in the French and Italian wine markets. Her current research interests include supply chain organization, regulatory politics, and price theory.

During her stay at CES, Carter will work on her book project “For What its Worth: The Politics of Market Barriers in European Luxury Markets”. The project will investigate the linkages between political organization, market protection, and value construction in luxury markets in France, Italy, Spain, Germany, and the European Union. She will analyze dynamics between trust and power across the supply chain, and their relationship to prices and perceived production quality.
