This week I am in Washington, DC, attending the ISAC/ISSS conference–APSA and ISA’s international security section conference–held at American University. I am presenting my new research on Middle East conflicts, a paper analyzing how informal hierarchy and status competition contributed to the Six Day War.
An article I co-authored with Jason Klocek of UC-Berkeley has been published in the Journal of Conflict Resolution’s early access section (for forthcoming articles that have not yet appeared in print). In it, we argue that religious conflict makes states wary of religion in general, leading to widespread religious freedom abuses. It should be of interest to those working on conflict, human rights, and religion and politics.
