Michael A. Allen

Professor of Political Science, Boise State University

I research topics including power, war, and asymmetry in relations between states and other actors. Much of my work has focused on US military deployments and basing overseas. Currently, I am part of a research team working on a Minerva Initiative and Army Research Office grant that examines the positive and negative effects of US troops deployments and how those effects are perceived by people within countries hosting US troops.
