Andrew Levin's current research focuses on United Nations peacekeeping. He studies how peacekeepers can help reduce violence, the sub-national dynamics of peacekeeping in civil war, and countries’ decisions about committing personnel to UN operations. In his research, he uses GIS to better understand where the UN deploys peacekeepers within countries and the conditions under which peacekeeping is more or less likely to be effective at the local level.

Recent conferences attended and presentations:

  • International Studies Association Annual Conference, 2016. “When the Going Gets Tough: Regime Type and Personnel Contributions to UN Peacekeeping Operations”
  • American Political Science Association Annual Conference, 2014. “Displacing Conflict or Diffusing Benefits? Analyzing the Sub-National Spatial Effects of UN Peacekeeping Deployment”
  • American Political Science Association Annual Conference, 2013. “Context Matters: Explaining Sub-National Variation in UN Peacekeeping Outcomes”
