Political Cover or Moral Imperative: Reparations in West Germany
October 14, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Claire Greenstein is a postdoctoral researcher at Georgia Tech in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs. She received her PhD in political science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in July 2018. Her dissertation focuses on what motivates governments to pay reparations to their own citizens in the wake of widespread, state-sanctioned human rights abuses. She uses a multi-methods approach in her dissertation: she has created an original dataset on reparations promises and payments that allows her to test her theory quantitatively, she has constructed a game theoretic model to examine reparations through a rational choice lens, and, in addition to conducting archival research abroad, she has interviewed over sixty people in five different countries in order to collect detailed qualitative data for the case studies included in her dissertation.
This event is part of the North Carolina German Studies Workshop and Seminar Series.
