Coming to Seton Hall with research and teaching experience in both the United States and abroad, Dr. Alireza Raisi received his doctorate in Political Science, after defending his dissertation on comparative politics and public policy. Dr. Raisi brings with him a strong body of research on comparative politics and international relations, providing students with a particularly analytical look at one of the most dynamic regions in today's world; the Middle East. Dr. Raisi categorizes his research efforts into three sectors: comparative political economy, foreign policy analysis, and religion and politics in the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA). Drawing from his pluralistic background in quantitative and qualitative methodology, Dr. Raisi will teach the research methods courses for both graduate and undergraduate students leading them in developing their own research skills.
