International organizations and crisis resolution
MetadataShow full item record
This paper examines the role that international organizations can play in the crisis resolution process. Specifically, I examine the ability of states to influence both the domestic population and domestic leaders in favor of crisis resolution, with regime type as an intervening variable in the process. I examine my hypotheses empirically, utilizing the International Crisis Behavior Dataset. The results of my analysis are mixed with international organizations seen as largely ineffective in the crisis resolution process. However, the evidence does support my hypothesis that international organizations may be effective in changing public opinion in favor of crisis resolution.
