As noted in a previous post, I recently delivered presentations at two research conferences for graduate students in the Washington, DC area.

Last Friday, 3/22, I delivered the findings from my paper, Breaking the Conflict Trap: On the Factors Contributing to Civil War Recurrenceto the 2nd annual Graduate Student Research Conference at George Mason’s School of Public Policy. A copy of my presentation is available below:

Last evening, I presented the preliminary findings from my Masters thesis research at the Journal of International Service & Graduate Student Conference’s Spring Research Symposium, which focused on human security & development. My presentation, titled “Disasters as Conflict Triggers: A New Framework for Analysis in Conflict-Affected & Post-Conflict States,” focused on my work analyzing the linkages between disasters and conflict in fragile settings. It includes a case study of conflict dynamics of the international response to the 2005 Kashmir Earthquake in Pakistan. A copy of my presentation is below. I will also upload the audio from the presentation as soon as it is available.
