Isabel M. Perera employs comparative and historical research methods to study public policy, especially in the area of mental health. As a doctoral student, she examined the comparative political economy of psychiatric service provision in France and the United States, drawing conclusions for processes of deinstitutionalization around the world. Her objective for the fellowship is to consider the implications of her findings for normative debates on the appropriate allocation of resources in mental health.
