Words from International Relations Faculty
Christopher Lamont | Associate Professor of International Relations
My interest in International Relations led me to study abroad in Croatia at a time when the country was confronted with the task of dealing with the immediate legacy of armed conflict. It was in part this experience that led me to ask questions about how societies deal with the legacies of conflict, and to eventually write a doctoral dissertation on efforts to prosecute war crimes in the former Yugoslavia. Today, I continue to research and write on topics related to post-conflict justice and state-building, and I contribute to both scholarly journals and more widely read journals such as Foreign Affairs and Foreign Policy. In the classroom, my students are encouraged to discuss contentious issues that are at the forefront of international politics so as to better understand academic and policy debates, and also to think about how they can apply their own ideas and experiences to addressing real world problems.
