Rebecca Dudley

I am a PhD Candidate in Political Science, with an emphasis in Security, Peace & Conflict and Political Methodology (applied statistics). My research focuses on conflict management and foreign policy, focusing on the role of third parties in the dynamics of conflict and conflict resolution. My dissertation project examines the decision of third-party states to become diplomatically involved in a peace process, with an emphasis on U.S. diplomatic foreign policy.

I am a Graduate Fellow for the Duke Program in American Grand Strategy, a Pre-Doctoral Fellow with the America in the World Consortium at Duke University, and a 2021-2022 Hans J. Morgenthau Fellow with the Notre Dame International Security Center. I was also a 2019-2020 Junior Scholar with the Carnegie International Policy Scholars Consortium and Network.
