Biography

Aleksey Kolpakov returned to SPEA as a visiting lecturer after finishing his PhD at IU in December 2012 then working for two years as a public program evaluator for the state of Ohio. Kolpakov's research focuses on collaborative management and governance, and human resource management in the public sector. He also specializes in public service motivation, program evaluation, conflict resolution, and conflict prevention. Recently, Kolpakov developed first-in-the-world methodology for conflict sensitivity assessment of legislative acts, which may allow for prevention of conflicts at both the national and local levels.

Over the past 17 years, Kolpakov has taught public administration courses at both the graduate and undergraduate levels at IU, Ohio University, and American University of Central Asia. Since 2002, he has contributed to projects and programs as a consultant and training officer for the United Nations global development network, UNDP, in Kyrgyzstan.
