Just a quick post today. The week has turned out to be busier than I anticipated so I’ll take the opportunity to share a few bits of news.
♦ Professor Joel Trachtman was interviewed in April on our local NPR station on intellectual property theft and what it means for American businesses and citizens.
♦ Fletcher is the host for a blog on corruption in fragile states.
♦ Fletcher was featured in Pacific Standard magazine for our success in integrating gender into our curriculum and classes.
♦ Professor Kelly Sims Gallagher, along with Qi Qi, a research fellow at the Center for International Environment and Resource Policy, released a report on the policies governing China’s foreign direct investment.
♦ This semester has been a particularly productive time for faculty publishing. Three recent publications:
Tom Dannenbaum, assistant professor of international law, argues for institutional reforms that respect the rights and responsibilities of soldiers in The Crime of Aggression, Humanity, and the Soldier (Cambridge University Press).
Alex De Waal, executive director of the World Peace Foundation and a research professor, provides an authoritative history of modern famines in Mass Starvation: The History and Future of Famine (Wiley, 2018).
Chris Miller, assistant professor of international history, looks at the economic policies that underwrote Putin’s two-decades-long rule in Putinomics: Power and Money in Resurgent Russia (University of North Carolina Press).
