Qualifications
BA, Government, Global Studies, History, St. Lawrence University, Canton, NY MA, International Relations, Central European University, Budapest, Hungary MA, Social Science, Middle East Technical University (Turkey)/Humboldt University Berlin (Germany) PhD project: Within the broader canopy of civil-military relations literature, my study focuses on the civil-military discourse with regards to armed non-state actors. Deviating from the \\\'traditional\\\' assumptions about the separation of the two realms, and assuming that armed figurations (specifically HAMAS and Hezbollah) like other social actors would look to maintain a level of legitimacy at least among their core constituencies, this project asks: \\\'Bounded by the broader goal of legitimization, what determines the rationality behind the strategic choices armed non-state actors make in order to balance and priorities their military and civil functions?
