Salemi, Colette

Doctoral Student, Public Affairs


I am currently a PhD student in Public Policy at the University of Minnesota. An economist by training, I am interested in labor outcomes in middle-income Arabic-speaking countries and how factors such as classism or nepotism lead to occupational segregation and discrimination. Recent studies of the aid environment in Jordan have also inspired a newfound commitment to studying protracted displacement, looking at sub-themes such as: policy choice under inter-temporal uncertainty, deliberative policy-making, polycentric governance and aid planning, adverse incentive structures, and the outcomes of state/donor bargaining. I am a mixed methods researcher, and my work strives to bring together complementary insights from economics, political science, and sociology.
