December 19, 2017-- Call for proposals: We’d love to add your project to our series Power & Human Rights, edited by Professor Zehra Arat. With a focus on power dynamics and their context, books in the series will explore such themes as: the power of human rights as a concept; advocacy for human rights as a power struggle; the impact of power differentials on human rights; institutional mechanisms that enhance the power of human rights advocates; and obstacles set by states and other actors to subvert human rights. Please contact Professor Arat at zehra.arat@uconn.edu to discuss your project.

September 19, 2017-- Congratulations to Dr. Sobukwe Odinga, the winner of this year’s LRP/African Politics Conference Group Best Dissertation Award! His work Looking for Leverage: Hard Bargaining and US-African Security Partnerships, is an exemplary dissertation that lives at the intersection of international relations theory and African politics. As more and more evidence of the U.S.'s investment in military operations on the continent emerges and is made public, Odinga’s work will hopefully emerge as one of the best and most important contributions to a revitalized and re-centered study of African international relations in the coming years.
