Understanding Conflicts in the

Middle East and South Asia

 

Paul Staniland, Ph.D

 

Civil wars and international tension are rife in the Middle East and South/Central Asia, from Syria through Pakistan. The United States has been deeply involved in these regions, with mixed results. Professor Staniland will give an overview of these conflicts and their implications for American foreign policy.


Paul Staniland is an associate professor of political science at the University of Chicago, where he co-directs the Program on International Security Policy. His research interests are in civil war, international security and ethnic politics, primarily in South Asia. His current book project and related articles examine organizational cohesion and fragmentation in surgent groups. Paul is the son-in-law of Sari and John Incledon.
