Yakasah O Wehyee
I earned my BA in political science and history from Hamline University and my MA from the University of Minnesota. I am a current Ph.D. candidate at the University of Minnesota where I study topics that intersect the comparative politics and international relations subfields. My research interests include authoritization, authoritarian regime duribility and transition, as well as state building and civil conflicts. My curent research centers on understanding why dominant party dictatorships rise and fall, with an emphasis on Liberia’s dominant party regime, the True Whig Party (TWP).
