Speaker: Dr Phil Arena

Why do democracy and peace tend to go together? We contend that democracy is unlikely to flourish where war is most likely to occur, and thus the correlation between the two is likely spurious. A theoretical model develops the logic, and statistical analysis lends support to the primary observable implications.

Phil Arena is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Government at the University of Essex. Before that, he held appointments at the University of Rochester and the University of Buffalo. His primary research interests are international conflict and the links between domestic and international politics.
