Russian, E. European & Eurasian Center: Speakers

Professors Anna Ohanyan and Erik Herron will address what is most important to know about the current conflict surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh, and also how we should understand it in relation to larger patterns of conflict across the post-Soviet space (and the world more generally) today.

Anna Ohanyan is the Richard B. Finnegan Distinguished Professor of Political Science and International Relations at Stonehill College, and two-time Fulbright Scholar to the South Caucasus. Her latest two books are Russia Abroad: Driving Regional Fracture in Post-Communist Eurasia and Beyond, an edited volume published by Georgetown University Press in 2018, and Networked Regionalism as Conflict Management published by Stanford University Press in 2015. Her articles appeared in International Studies Review, Peace and Change, Conflict Resolution Quarterly,  Global Governance,  and Global Society, among other journals. She has consulted for numerous organizations such as the United Nations Foundation, the World Bank, the National Intelligence Council Project, the U.S. Department of State, the Carter Center, and USAID. 

Erik Herron is the Eberly Family Professor of Political Science at West Virginia University. He has also served as a Program Director at the National Science Foundation (2011-14). Professor Herron's research focuses on political institutions, especially electoral systems. He has traveled extensively to conduct research in Eastern Europe and Eurasia, including a term as a Fulbright scholar in Ukraine and twelve election observation missions. He has published research in the American Journal of Political Science, Journal of Politics, World Politics, Comparative Political Studies, Electoral Studies, Legislative Studies Quarterly and other journals, and two books: Mixed Electoral Systems: Contamination and its Consequences (with Federico Ferrara and Misa Nishikawa) and Elections and Democracy after Communism.
