Born in Syktyvkar, Russia, Dr. Alexei Trochev (PhD, University of Toronto; MPA, University of Kansas; Law, Syktyvkar State University) teaches Political Science Research Methods, International Law, and Law, Politics, and Society, and Post-Soviet Public Policy. Prior to that, he taught political science and law courses at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada and the Pomor State University in Arkhangelsk, Russia. He also edits the journal “Statutes and Decisions: The Laws of the USSR and Its Successor States,” which has recently covered issues of police reform in Kyrgyzstan, and administrative justice in Uzbekistan. His current research focuses on transitional justice in post-Soviet states. In one three-year project, called “In the GULAG’s Shadow: Producing, Consuming & Perceiving Prisons in the Former Soviet Union” and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, he serves as a collaborator in the team of researchers from the University of Strathclyde and the Higher School of Economics. His other project deals with the questions of how and why some post-Soviet states chose to ban Communist parties through courts while others did not.
