Matthew Maguire

Welcome to my personal website! I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Political Science at Boston University and a Research Assistant with the Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) project. I have been a Visiting Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne, the Institute for Human Sciences in Vienna, and the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation at the University of Warwick.

My research interests lie broadly in the fields of comparative politics, regulation and governance, and political methodology. My dissertation shows how the growth of voluntary corporate self-regulation, often referred to as corporate social responsibility (CSR), has lead to the development of new public policy in the European Union.

I received an M.Sc. in Comparative Politics from the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2008 and a B.A. in History from Cornell University in 2003.
