Carey Doberstein

Assistant Professor, UBC, Political Science 

Carey’s research interests and publications traverse several core domains of political science and public policy and administration in a Canadian context, but is united by a focus in studying both the democratic and policy implications of forms of governance that include citizens and civil society actors in policy planning decision-making, with a particular focus on urban or local government issues. He also maintains a research program using experimental methods, including surveys of citizens and public servants, as well as participatory planning simulations related to urban development, housing, and homelessness. 

Doberstein is Associate Editor of Canadian Public Administration, where he leads the Book Review and New Frontiers sections. He holds a SSHRC Insight Grant (2018-2023) for designing and evaluating collaborative governance through experimentation. He was recently awarded the Hodgett’s Prize for the best article published in Canadian Public Administration in 2020.
