I have taught at UNH since fall 2008 and I teach courses on international relations and comparative politics.
My research covers social movements and democratization, international human rights norms and international norms that promote human security (especially the responsibility to protect/R2P norm), Turkish politics, counter-terrorism, and human rights. My latest research explores the tension between counter-terrorism and physical integrity rights and analyzes the ways civil society organizations attempt to hold states accountable for gross human rights violations during armed conflicts. In doing so, it examines the capacity of international human rights treaties to alter state behavior.
More specifically, my research projects have examined :
US in World Affairs
Political Violence and Terrorism
Political & Social Change in Developing Countries
Women & War
Model United Nations/Conference
Dictatorship and Democracy
Globalization: Politics, Economics & Culture
International Relations Seminar: Interdisciplinary Approaches
Senior Capstone & Interdisciplinary Seminar
Law and Society Politics in Italy (UNH Florence Study Abroad)
My work has been featured in Global Governance, Middle Eastern Studies, Turkish Studies, Global Responsibility to Protect, World Politics Review, and more.
