Burns receives research fellowship to complete book

Sarah Burns, associate professor of political science, has received an Institute for Humane Studies (IHS) Sabbatical Research Fellowship to complete her book manuscript on the value of developing economic institutions as a non-violent method of foreign intervention. Burns’ book will address American foreign policy attempts to impose democracy on countries with the goal of making those countries free and the world less violent. The project will offer objective reasons why these efforts are a product of the misguided decision to apply Democratic Peace Theory to American foreign policy.
