I am an award-winning researcher and author on war and peace. I am an expert in peacebuilding, peacekeeping, international aid, and African civil wars, especially in the Democratic Republic of Congo. I am the author of the books Peaceland and The Trouble with the Congo, as well as 27 scholarly, policy, and news articles. I currently work as a Professor of Political Science, specializing in international relations, at Barnard College, Columbia University (USA).

Here are the latest publications based on my new research project, “International Peacebuilding and Local Success”: articles in the International Studies Review, Foreign Affairs (here and here), and The Washington Post (here and here). I am currently writing a book (tentatively entitled Peace Possible) based on this project, so feedback and suggestions on my preliminary research findings would be most welcome. Thanks!
