Eddy Malesky Named New Director of DCID

August 4, 2020
On August 1, Duke University Professor Edmund (Eddy) Malesky became the director of the Duke Center for International Development (DCID). In addition to his leadership role at DCID, Malesky is a full professor in the Duke Political Science Department with 20 years of experience in research, teaching, and policy consulting related to international development, authoritarian institutions, and comparative political economy. Malesky is also the Chair of the Southeast Asia Research Group (SEAREG) Council, a position he has held since 2019.

Dean Judith Kelley of the Sanford School said, “Eddy Malesky hits that sweet spot that is so important for a university center: He has a foot in the world of practice and policy, and a foot in academia as an outstanding scholar. The global pandemic will only increase the vulnerability of many countries around the world, so this is an important moment for Duke to raise our profile in international development through DCID’s vision of peace and prosperity for all. I am certain that Eddy’s leadership of DCID will multiply the impact of existing global efforts across Duke.”
