New Borders and Their Consequences  
CISAC Research Seminar

Date and Time
June 2, 2011
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Open to the public
No RSVP required

Hein Goemans - Associate Professor of Political Science at University of Rochester
Amanda Robinson (commentator) - PhD Candidate, Political Science at Stanford University

Hein Goemans received his PhD in Political Science from the University of Chicago in 1995 and currently serves as Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Rochester in New York. 

His book War and Punishment was published by Princeton University Press in 2000. Another book, Leaders and International Conflict (co-authored with Giacomo Chiozza) is forthcoming by Cambridge University Press. Other publications have appeared in the American Journal of Political Science and the Journal of Conflict Resolution

Goemans is currently engaged in two research projects. The first extends the research in his first book on the causes of war termination and examines the role and incentives of leaders in international conflict initiation. This seminar will draw on his work for his second research project, which explores when and why people become attached to specific pieces of territory that together constitute a "homeland" and the consequences of these attachments.
