Michael Allen, Political Science, studio portrait

I am an associate professor of Political Science at Boise State University. I have bene at Boise State since 2012. My primary research focus area is on asymmetric interaction in international relations, whether it is between states or non-states in contexts of war, civil conflict, terrorism, US foreign policy, and international political economy. I teach courses on  international relations, comparative foreign policy, US foreign policy, civil war, terrorism, research and quantitative methodology, and game theory.

Paul Huth recently interviewed me for a podcast centered on my recent publication in the Journal of Conflict Resolution.
