hosted by Professor Michael G. Plummer

Eugene Finkel
Johns Hopkins University SAIS Europe

Eugene (Evgeny) Finkel is Associate Professor at SAIS Europe.

Finkel works at the intersection of political science and history and strives to promote a better dialogue between the two disciplines. He was born in Ukraine and grew up in Israel. He received a BA in Political Science and International Relations at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a PhD in Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research focuses on how institutions and individuals respond to extreme situations: violence, state collapse, and rapid change.

Finkel is the author of Ordinary Jews: Choice and Survival during the Holocaust (Princeton University Press, 2017) and, together with Scott Gehlbach, Reform and Rebellion in Weak States (Cambridge University Press, 2019). His articles have appeared in the American Political Science Review, Journal of Politics, Comparative Political Studies, Comparative Politics, East European Politics and Societies, Slavic Review, Democratization, and several other journals and edited volumes.
