Travel Research Engagement Grants

The Project on Middle East Political Science announces a call for proposals for POMEPS Travel – Research – Engagement (TRE) grants for 2021. Awards of up to $3,000 will be offered to support research travel to the broader Middle East in support of an ongoing academic research project or the development of new research projects. Given the COVID-19 crisis and the increasingly difficulty of conducting research in the region, we will consider proposals for research which does not involve travel to the Middle East.

Doctoral Dissertation Research: Accountability in Rebel Regimes

The project investigates local governance and the establishment of law-like systems of order in territory controlled by rebel organizations during civil war. In particular, the project explains variation in rebel organizations' provision of public goods and services as well as their use of coercive violence against civilians to control territory. Departing from existing research, the argument examines civilian political mobilization and collective action to constrain rebel organizations, advancing a political accountability theory of rebel governance.

Doctoral Dissertation Research: Homeward Bound: Return Migration and Post-Conflict Governance

This dissertation examines the political impact of return migration after civil war. Violence wrought by civil war forces millions of people to flee their homes. While scholars have demonstrated how these population movements can spread and exacerbate conflict, return-migration is assumed to be a purely logistical issue. Once the war is over, people will simply return home and pick up where they left off. Yet, conflict between returning and non-migrant populations is a nearly ubiquitous issue for post-conflict societies from South Sudan to Iraq and Rwanda.
