Jóhanna Birnir

Jóhanna Kristín Birnir is the recipient of this year's National Academies Research Council's Department of Homeland Security Resident Research Associateship at the START and CIDCM. She completed her Ph.D. at the University of California Los Angeles in 2001 and accepted a position as Assistant Professor at SUNY-Buffalo that same year. Her research is in the field of Comparative Politics. Broadly speaking she focuses on political developments in new democracies in Latin America and Eastern Europe. More specifically, Jóhanna studies the effects of institutions on party system development and ethnic politics with a special emphasis on conflict and terrorism. She is the author of *Ethnicity and Electoral Politics*(Cambridge University Press) and her papers are published in *Latin American Research Review*, *Comparative Political Studies*, *Studies in Comparative International Development*, *Research Policy*, and other professional journals. While at CIDCM Jóhanna will be working on the "paradox of political terrorism in democracy" and institutional solutions to ethnic conflict and terrorism. She will also be involved in the improvement of the MAR data-set and merger of MAR and the new MAROB (OB for Organizational Behavior.)
