Dr. Sabrina Karim will start as an assistant professor in the Government Department at Cornell University in 2017. She is currently a Dartmouth Fellow in U.S. Foreign Policy and International Security. She is the co-author of a forthcoming book with Oxford University Press entitled Equal Opportunity Peacekeeping. Her research interests include gender reforms in the post-conflict security sector and in peacekeeping, the effect of security sector reform on peace and security, third party involvement in peace processes, and the relationship between conflict-related violence and post-conflict sexual violence. Much of her research has been in sub-Saharan Africa, where she has conducted field experiments, lab experiments, and surveys. Through studies in Liberia, her work examines the impact of security sector reforms on trust in the state. She earned her PhD in Political Science from Emory University. Prior to her doctorate degree, she received a Fulbright Fellowship in Peru to study the impact of women’s representation in the police force on corruption. She also received her master’s degree as a Clarendon Scholar from Oxford University and her undergraduate degree from Georgetown University.
