Amanda M. Murdie
Office: 315 Professional Building
Greetings. In May of 2009, I received my Ph.D. from Emory University. I study International Relations, specializing in the behavior of international non-governmental organizations (INGOs) and their interactions with states, local populations, and intergovernmental organizations (IGOs). I am also interested in human rights, development, quantitative methodologies, formal modeling, and conflict more generally.
I have a strong interest in INGOs, human rights, and development, commonly thought of as non-traditional specialties in International Relations. I believe that the rigorous study of these specialties will contribute greatly to the mainstream literature, addresses questions previously unanswered within the discipline, and allows researchers to bridge the gap between academic fields.
