Changing Norms of Political Violence in Intrastate Disputes
My research examines the ongoing changes in the use of violence as a tool of political conflict. Principally, my work examines the dramatic decline in incidents of violent conflict over the past two decades and seeks to explain this shift in international practice. Drawing upon recent European history, I look to see how traditional tools of war such as the navies have been adapted to peacefully resolve international disputes.
