Book Talk: “Global Governance and Local Peace: Accountability
and Performance in International Peacebuilding”
Susanna Campbell, Assistant Professor, School of International Service, American University
Moderated by Severine Autessere, Professor of Political Science, Barnard College, Columbia University
Campbell’s research and teaching address war-to-peace transitions, peacebuilding, peacekeeping, international development and humanitarian aid, global governance, IO and INGO behavior, and the micro-dynamics of civil war and peace. She uses mixed-method research designs and has conducted extensive fieldwork in conflict-affected countries, including Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Nepal, Sudan, South Sudan, and East Timor. She has received several large grants for her research, including from the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Swiss Network for International Studies, as well as a United States Institute of Peace Dissertation Fellowship. She is currently writing a second book, Aiding Peace? Donor Behavior in Conflict-Affected Countries, based on a three-year research project that she ran. Campbell’s peer-reviewed publications appear or are forthcoming with Cambridge University Press, Columbia University Press, International Studies Review, Journal of Global Security Studies, Cambridge Review of International Affairs, International Peacekeeping, Journal of Peacebuilding and Development, and Zed Books. Campbell received her Ph.D. in 2012 from Tufts University, and was a Post-Doctoral Researcher at both The Graduate Institute in Geneva and Columbia University’s Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies.
