A friendly reminder that the University of Washington International Security Colloquium (UWISC) welcomes Kimberly Marten, the Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Political Science at Barnard College. Professor Marten will present a talk titled "What if NATO Hadn't Expanded? A Counterfactual Analysis of Russia and the West." The talk will be held on Friday, 1 May from 12-1:30pm in the Olson Room (Gowen 1a).

Professor Martin received her PhD in 1991 from Stanford University. She was a post-doctoral fellow at Stanford's Center for International security and Cooperation, a visiting scholar at Harvard's Olin Institute for Strategic Studies, a visiting scholar at Tokyo's Institute for International Policy Studies, and a visiting fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. She currently serves as a faculty in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the School for International and Public Affairs at Columbia University and is the the Deputy Director for Development at Columbia's Harriman Institute for Russian, Eurasian, and East European Studies. Her latest book, Warlords: Strong-Arm Brokers in Weak States traces the development of warlordism and its consequences in Pakistan, Iraq, and post-Soviet Georgia, and her current research projects focus on Russian foreign and security policy.
