Positions

Overview

  • I have taught at UNH since fall 2008 and I teach courses on international relations and comparative politics. My typical rotation of courses includes: Political Violence & Terrorism, US in World Affairs, Political & Social Change in Developing Countries, Globalization: Politics, Economics & Culture, and Women & War.

    My research projects have examined :
    o how civil society in Turkey has attempted to hold the state accountable for human rights violations associated with counter-terrorism policy and practice (specifically, torture, curfews, disappearances and states of emergency)
    o ISIS oil looting and environmental security in Iraq and Syria
    o the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s treaties and initiatives on counter-terrorism and the protection of human rights while countering terrorism
    o the Organization for Islamic Cooperation’s response to the humanitarian crisis in Syria
    o the Organization for Islamic Cooperation's response to ISIS terrorism
    o changing ideas about humanitarian intervention, specifically an emerging international norm called the responsibility to protect
    o how the women’s rights movement in Turkey has promoted their agenda under a religious conservative government
    o how human rights activists in Turkey bridged ideological divisions to challenge the state on the issues of torture, Kurdish linguistic rights, the headscarf ban and freedom of expression
