The Alaska Economy: Wishful Thinking Versus Economic Reality
Clive Thomas has combined a career in the academic and consulting worlds. He taught political science at the University of Alaska in Juneau from 1981-2011. In 1988 he established the Alaska Universities Legislative Internship Program, which he ran for 25 years. His publications include twelve books and over sixty chapters in books and articles. These have focused on U.S. state politics, including Alaska politics (on which he has written extensively), political parties and interest groups. He has received several grants and research awards, including four Fulbright Scholarships.
Over the past thirty years his consulting has focused on helping people understand the practical workings of politics and government. Through his consulting firm, Alaska Political Advocacy Strategies (APAS), he has worked with the Alaska Municipal League, the Association of Alaska School Boards, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the U.S. Forest Service, among other organizations. He has also been involved in consulting in Europe and Latin America. In addition, he has made presentations on various aspects of politics throughout the world, and regularly provides commentary for TV, radio and newspapers in Alaska and across the United States.
Clive received his Ph.D from the LSE (London School of Economics and Political Science). He is now a Senior Fellow at the Thomas S. Foley Institute for Public Policy and Public Service at Washington State University, and a Visiting Professor at the University of São Paulo in Brazil.
