Abhay Aneja is an Assistant Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley. His fields of interest in economics are political economy, economic history, and labor economics. His areas of interest in law include the law of democracy, criminal justice, and law and inequality. His current research projects focus on how democratic institutions and criminal justice systems shape inequality, and in particular, the socioeconomic outcomes of historically marginalized subpopulations. His primary project uses the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act to examine how the re-enfranchisement of African Americans and subsequent protection of their political rights contributed to their improved economic status between 1950 and 1980. Other research examines how minority political representation affects targeted violence and the financial consequences of incarceration.
