GRADUATE STUDENT | ANDREW RADIN
Andrew Radin received his PhD from the MIT Political Science Department in June 2012. He is currently the Heyward R. Alker Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Southern California. His dissertation is entitled "The Limits of State-Building: The Politics of War and the Ideology of Peace," and demonstrates how the domestic politics of post-conflict societies sometimes prevents the international community from creating democratic and modern institutions. His research interests bridge the divide between international relations and comparative politics and include international intervention, civil wars, comparative democratization, and ethnic politics. He received his B.A. in Political Science and Mathematics from the University of Chicago and has received fellowships from the Woodrow Wilson Center, the US Institute of Peace, and the Smith Richardson Foundation.
