Andrea L. Everett


I am a Visiting Scholar at the Center on Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law at Stanford University.  I received my PhD from the Department of Politics at Princeton University in 2012 and have previously taught and conducted research in the Politics Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz; the Department of International Affairs at the University of Georgia; and Dartmouth College’s Dickey Center for International Understanding.  Prior to my graduate studies, I received a B.A. from Stanford University and studied in Berlin as a Fulbright Scholar.

My research focuses on humanitarian politics and policy, including the protection of civilians from violent conflict through the deployment of peace operations and, more broadly, the allocation of international assistance in response to humanitarian crises.  It also addresses related issues of human security, foreign policy decision-making, and the impact of human rights activism.  My first book, Humanitarian Hypocrisy (Cornell University Press, 2017) explains why some peace operations are designed to effectively protect civilians from violence while others are not.  My research has also been published in Security Studies and Conflict Management and Peace Science.  I am also very interested in the global politics of conservation.
