Emily Hencken Ritter to Join UC Merced Political Science!

January 3, 2013

We are excited to announce that Emily Hencken Ritter will join the Political Science program beginning July 2013.  Ritter received her Ph.D. from Emory University in 2010 and is currently on faculty at the University of Alabama.  Her research examines questions regarding when and how states will cooperate with international institutions, how international institutions impact outcomes through domestic institutions, and the onset and process of domestic conflict. Specific questions she has explored on these topics include how international and domestic legal institutions such as human rights treaties, international criminal courts and tribunals, and domestic courts can constrain the state from repressing citizens while potential dissidents threaten leaders’ control of power. Ritter's work has been published in the Journal of Politics, the Journal of Conflict Resolution, and the Journal of Theoretical Politics.
