Bann Seng Tan is an Assistant Professor of Political Science and International Relations at Ashoka University. He is an associate editor with the Asia Europe Journal: Studies on Common Policy Challenges. His research interests are on the causes and effects of democratization, the politics of foreign aid, the political economy of natural disasters, resurgent authoritarianism, and the democratic peace. His policy proclivities revolve around the defence of the liberal world order. Democracy promotion is but one way to push against authoritarianism. Having taught courses in comparative politics many times, he found ways to reach out to students, and he wants to share useful works with fellow teachers.
