Political scientists participate in UNC Chapel Hill policy workshop

By Allison Kuehne

Carla Martinez Machain, associate professor of political science, and Jeff Pickering, professor and department head of political science, were invited to present research and participate in roundtable discussions at the Lethal Aid and Human Security Conference June 22-24 hosted by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Sponsored by the Carnegie Foundation, the International Studies Association and the Triangle Institute for Security Studies, the conference brought together academics, policymakers and practitioners from nongovernmental organizations to improve our understanding of the impact that military aid and arms transfers have on fragile states.
