Rottem Sagi

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department
of Sociology at the University of California, Irvine.
I earned my M.A. in Sociology (2012) from the University
of California, Irvine. I am an aliate of the Center
for the Study of Democracy (awarded June 2011 & 2012).
My research interests include social movements/collective
behavior, political sociology, organizational theory, sociology
of culture, and statistics. I use a combination of
qualitative and quantitative methods to understand organizations,
political structures, and policy outcomes. My
dissertation will test and re ne existing theories about
coalition formation and maintenance. Exploring changes
in American pro-Israel movement coalitions from 1945
to 2010 will provide a more nuanced understanding of
how coalitions respond to exogenous factors (i.e. threats,
opportunities, structure of the organizational eld) and
address endogenous issues (i.e. organizational independence,
coalition structure, and inter-personal ties between
group leaders). For more information, visit my website:
