This cluster explores statecraft: the foreign policies and strategies of states and non-state actors; the wars and conflicts that sometimes result; and diplomacy and security relations.

Research and teaching in this cluster draws on diverse theoretic and methodological approaches, and ranges across levels of analysis, regions, and eras. Over two-dozen faculty and doctoral students contribute to this cluster.

Specific foci of research include foreign policy analysis, comparative strategy, identity and security, war and society, peace-building and conflict resolution, revolutions, human security and genocide. We have particular regional expertise in East Asia, Europe, Eurasia, the Middle East, Asia-Pacific, and North America.
