Royce Koop | Research | Teaching | CV

I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Studies at the University of Manitoba. I received a Ph.D, which was supervised by Ken Carty, from the University of British Columbia in 2009. Before coming to Manitoba in 2012, I held postdoctoral positions at Memorial University, Queen's University, and Carleton University, and was Assistant Professor in the Graduate School of Public Policy at Simon Fraser University in 2011-12.

I write about political parties (particularly their grassroots organizations), representation, municipal politics, federalism, and online political communication. I teach courses on Canadian government and politics.

My book, Grassroots Liberals: Organizing for Local and National Politics, examines the constituency organizations of Canada's national and provincial Liberal parties and how political parties adapt their organizations to federalism; my co-edited volume, Parties, Elections, and the Future of Canadian Politics, explores change in Canada's national party system.
