Courtenay R. Conrad

I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Merced. My primary research and teaching interests include political violence, state repression, human rights, international organizations, and comparative political institutions. The majority of my work focuses on how executives make decisions regarding repression in the face of domestic and international institutional constraints.

My research has been published in the American Journal of Political Science, Journal of Politics, International Studies Quarterly, Journal of Conflict Resolution, and Journal of Peace Research, among others. You can find me on Google Scholar and the Scholar’s Strategy Network.
