Dr. Erin Little is a Lecturer in the School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Georgia. Her research emphasizes the role that civilian targeting plays during international conflict in escalating conflict processes and inhibiting positive peace. She also explores how international organizations and international law endeavor to both prevent civilian targeting and ameliorate its effects, and when these efforts are most successful. Erin earned her Ph.D. in May 2022 from the University of Alabama, where she documented an incident-level dataset to empirically study attacks on civilians over the course of international conflict. She is currently working on consolidating her research into a book on the effects of civilian targeting and how we may intervene to both prevent attacks on civilians and mitigate their consequences moving forward.
