Curriculum Vitae


Research Interests

Prof. Anderson’s research interests lie in the area of Canadian political behaviour with specific interests in economic voting, political identity and citizen behaviour in a multilevel setting.


Current Research Projects

With Jack Lucas (Calgary), Mike McGregor (Ryerson) and Laura Stephenson (Western), Prof. Anderson (PI) was awarded a SSHRC Insight Grant for “The Multilevel Democracy Project”.  This is a five-year project will explore citizen and candidate attitudes towards the practice of democracy at the local and provincial level in Ontario over a multi-wave series of surveys surrounding the provincial election and municipal elections happening in 2022. 

With Mike McGregor (PI) and many others, Prof. Anderson is part of the Canadian Municipal Election Study Team (www.cmes-eemc.ca).  Prof. Anderson’s participation in this project has resulted in many presentations, articles, edited books and book chapters.

With Mathieu Turgeon (Western), Prof. Anderson is editing a book entitled “Comparative Public Opinion” (under contract with Routledge) which explores the sources of opinion about immigration in a range of democratic countries.
