Brendan Skip Mark

Professor of political science, University of Rhode Island

Brendan Skip Mark joined the URI political science department in 2018. His research explores the intersections between human rights, political economy, collective dissent, and empirical methodology. He tries to unpack the determinants and consequences of: compliance with International Organization agreements, repression, labor rights, violent and non-violent protest, migration and remittances, development, economic crisis, and economic and social rights. He is particularly interested in how measurement and modeling choices affect what we know about these relationships and how an understanding of history and other disciplines can improve our knowledge of them.
