Joseph Cox

Postdoctoral Researcher

Joseph M. Cox has training in the study of International Relations and Comparative Politics, with a particular focus on comparative analyses of institutions. Within this sphere, his research interests broadly center on the effects of institutions bearing on the dynamics of civil conflicts, states’ human rights practices, and questions of post-conflict justice. His dissertation sought to understand how post-conflict judicial reforms influence the likelihood of conflict recurrence, a post-conflict state’s respect for the rule of law, and the human rights practices of post-conflict governments.
