Education
Doctorate, University of Maryland, College Park
      May 2013: Government and Politics (International Relations, Political Economy)

        Dissertation: “An Occupation with Democratization: A Marginal Value Approach to
        Understanding the Consolidation of Imposed Democratic Regimes”

        Committee: Dr. Karol Soltan (Chair), Dr. George Quester (Co-Chair), Drs. Virginia Haufler,
        Scott Kastner and I.M. Destler (Dean’s Representative, Public Policy)

        Abstract: The dissertation attempts to understand the causes and correlates of democratic
        consolidation in occupied territories. A Marginal Value Model attempts to explain the
        consolidation of democracy in these cases as a function of international threat dynamics
        and the relationship between the occupiers and the occupied regime. The dissertation tests
        the Marginal Value Model and its corresponding hypotheses against four case studies: post-
        WWI Germany, post-WWII Germany, Japan and Korea. The study finds that democracies
        are more likely to consolidate when there is an external threat, when the occupier credibly
        protects the new regime against this threat, and when the occupier provides additional
        goods to the domestic population. These tests find support for the Marginal Value Model
        and its corresponding hypotheses.
