Douglas B. Atkinson

Research Fellow, School of Law and Politics, Cardiff University

I received my Ph.D. in Political Science and International Affairs from the University of Georgia in May of 2018. Beginning in the summer of 2018, I will be a post-doctoral research fellow in the Centre for Political and Legal Analytics at Cardiff University.

I study international relations and comparative politics. In particular, I address two broad questions. How do the issues under dispute change states’ behavior in conflictual relationships? And, in what scenarios do explanations of interstate interactions based on relative power fall short?
