Sivaram researches comparative institutions with an emphasis on the conditions under which checks and balances can constrain the behavior of governments. Specifically, Sivaram investigates how judicial and compliance-monitoring institutions lacking the tools of enforcement can uphold the legal order, while facing potentially noncooperative executives, legislatures, and citizens.
His research is featured in European Union Politics, Journal of European Public Policy, Journal of Law and Courts, Journal of Politics, Journal of Political Institutions and Political Economy, and Political Science Research and Methods. He also received the 2022 APSA European Politics and Society Section Ernst B.
