R&R in International Organization

I am delighted that the editors of IO have invited Allison Carnegie and me to revise and resubmit our paper on the protection of civilians by UN peace operations to their journal. This article leverages two sources of exogenous variation in influence in the UN Security Council and 2SLS models to present the first cleanly identified estimate of the causal impact of multilateral peace operations on violence. This novel approach allows us to test the theoretical argument that the effect of peacekeepers depends on their relationship with the perpetrators of violence. Since peace operations often need to maintain close ties with the host government, they are only successful at reducing civilian fatalities inflicted by rebels, but not those caused by government forces.
