Professor Kelly McMann Promoted to (Full) Professor Status

Posted on August 25, 2017

Professor Kelly McMann was promoted to (full) Professor status in July 2017.  Her achievements across her career to date – her books, Corruption as a Last Resort: Adapting to the Market in Central Asia (Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 2014) and Economic Autonomy and Democracy: Hybrid Regimes in Russia and Kyrgyzstan (New York: Cambridge University Press, 2006); her involvement in the international Varieties of Democracy project; her leadership as Director of CWRU’s International Studies Program; among many other professional achievements – have led to this well-deserved promotion.  Professor McMann has been a Project Manager for the Varieties of Democracy Project (known as V-Dem).  The American Political Science Association awarded V-Dem the Lijphart/Przeworski/Verba Data Set Prize in 2016.  The indicators developed in the V-Dem Project are now being used by the World Bank.
