2 papers at PEIO 2016

I look forward to presenting two papers at the annual conference on the Political Economy of International Organizations hosted by the University of Utah and Brigham Young University in Salt Lake City on January 7-9, 2016. The first paper (co-authored with Allison Carnegie) exploits a natural experiment in order to present the first cleanly identified estimate of the impact of UN blue helmets on civilian casualties in civil wars. The second paper investigates issue linkage across international organizations, which enables states to leverage a temporary privileged position in one international organization (United Nations) to attain more preferable bargaining outcomes in another international organization (European Union).
