Please join the Center for Global Legal Challenges and the National Security Group for a discussion with Mara Revkin on security sector reform and transitional justice in Iraq. The conversation will focus on her research with the International Organization for Migration’s (IOM) Iraq Mission studying the effects of a community policing program that IOM implemented with the cooperation of Iraq’s Interior Ministry. Using a multi-method study involving both field experiments and door-to-door household surveys in Iraq, Dr. Revkin studied whether the community policing methods in fact help to protect human rights and promote democratization and peacebuilding.

Mara Revkin is the National Security Law Fellow at the Georgetown University Law Center. She holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from Yale University, a J.D. from Yale Law School, and a B.A. in Political Science and Arabic from Swarthmore College. Her dissertation focused on the Islamic State system of governance in Iraq and Syria and its post-conflict consequences including the Islamic State’s taxation system and civilian experiences under the Islamic State. Prior to graduate school, she was a Junior Fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for Middle East Peace and a Fulbright Fellow in Oman. Her work has been published in the Journal of Politics, the Harvard National Security Journal, the Annual Review of Law and Social ScienceForeign Affairs, and the Oxford Handbook of Islamic Law.
