Fields: International relations, comparative politics, migration, ethnic politics, civil conflict

I study conflict and ethnic identities. I've written books and articles about conflicts over migration and ethnic territorial autonomy, public support for war, and war costs. Currently, I am writing a global comparative study of nativism titled Strangers and Settlers: Migration and Conflict in a Nativist World. This book will be a combined treatment of political movements against international immigration and activism against internal population flows.
