Stephen Brooks is an associate professor of Government at Dartmouth, and has previously held fellowships at Harvard and Princeton. His current research spans three topics: US foreign policy in the current era, public opinion about the US role in the world, and how economic factors influence security affairs. He is the author of Producing Security: Multinational Corporations, Globalization, and the Changing Calculus of Conflict (Princeton), and co-author, with William Wohlforth, of World out of Balance: International Relations and the Challenge of American Primacy (Princeton). He has published articles International Organization, International Security, Journal of Conflict Resolution, Perspectives on Politics, Cambridge Review of International Affairs, Foreign Affairs, and Security Studies. He received his Ph.D. in Political Science with Distinction from Yale University, where his dissertation received the American Political Science Association's Helen Dwight Reid Award for the best doctoral dissertation in international relations, law, and politics.


The premium on thinking carefully about how economic factors can influence security affairs has arguably never been greater. This presentation will delineate why our underlying understanding of the role of economics in international relations is inadequate and how this can be rectified.
