Angela Gill, Public Policy PhD candidate: “Puppet-mastery? Understanding the Impact of U.S.-supported Leadership”
Legitimacy and effectiveness are two key components for the stability of any state and are often explicitly stated goals in cases of U.S. intervention. However, while U.S. officials can define rather easily measurable metrics for what they deem “effective,” legitimacy is a harder concept to measure. This project takes a first step in analyzing how leaders’ legitimacy affects the target state by exploring how the United States empowers emerging leaders and the effects of the supported leaders’ legitimacy on the stability of the state for cases of intervention from 1945-2008.
Formatted as mini conferences, the Schar School PhD Research Workshops provide a forum for students to present their research and receive feedback from faculty and students. These workshops are a great way to meet fellow students and faculty, grow research ideas, and prepare for greater challenges. Participants are encouraged to present working papers, practice for future conference presentations, share research results, or prepare for a job talk or dissertation defense.
Refreshments provided in Arlington.
