Bio/Research

Colin Campbell (Ph.D. Duke) joined the faculty as professor and the Canada Research Chair in U.S. Government and Politics in July 2002. He was also chair of the U.S. Studies Program of the Faculty of Arts (www.usstudies@ubc.ca) until 2008. Before coming to UBC, Campbell was at York University (1975-83) and Georgetown University (1983-2002). At Georgetown, Campbell founded and directed the Georgetown Public Policy Institute. He has authored or co-authored nine books that, with the exception of one, focus on executive-bureaucratic politics. Four of these works have drawn special recognition including Managing the Presidency that won the 1987 APSA Neustadt Prize for the best book on the U.S. Presidency and Preparing for the Future that won 2004 NAPA Brownlow Award for an outstanding book in the fields of public policy and administration. He has also edited eleven collections, including five books in a series of mid-term assessments of presidents. Campbell has published numerous articles and book chapters as well as twice serving as editor of the journal Governance that he founded in 1988 with B. Guy Peters. Campbell’s interests have turned now to study of military transformation with an emphasis on the Pentagon but some consideration as well of developments in the militaries of the UK, Canada and Australia. He is conducting this work in collaboration with Tim Came. Campbell was elected a fellow of the U.S. National Academy of Public Administration in 1999. During 2004, he served on a NAPA panel examining the technology transfer function of NASA. During 2006 and 2007, he was a member of a NAPA sub-panel on strategy and budgeting in the FBI. Campbell was a founding co-chairman of the International Political Science Association’s Research Committee on Structure and Organization of Governance. In 2008, he was the inaugural recipient of the committee’s Ulrich Kloeti Award for distinguished contributions to the study of comparative policy, administration and institutions.
