Location: Zoom invitation from Bree Bang-Jensen via uwisc@uw.edu

Sherry Zaks is an Assistant Professor of Comparative Politics at the University of Southern California. Her book project, Resilience Beyond Rebellion, examines the conditions under which rebel groups are able to transform into political parties in the aftermath of civil wars. She draws on organizational sociology to develop a comprehensive model of militant groups and trace how wartime structures either facilitate or inhibit rebel-to-party transformations. Her broader substantive interests lie at the intersection of international security, civil conflict, and democratization.
