SPIA In 60 Seconds

  • Professor Diehl Delivers Lecture

    Paul F. Diehl, the Henning Larsen Professor of Political Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and President-elect of the International Studies Association (ISA), delivered an invited talk at the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA) at the University of Georgia entitled: “Not Taking One Thing at a Time: The Interdependence of Peace Operation Outcomes.” The talk detailed an ambitious new research agenda on the short- and long-term effectiveness of global peacekeeping and peacebuilding measures. This new agenda intends to answer important theoretical and policy-related questions about the use of peacekeeping operations through international organizations such as the United Nations and to improve their overall effectiveness in the long-run.
