NSA Profs. Barma and Piombo Publish Jointly in International Peacekeeping
Two NSA faculty, Profs. Naazneen Barma and Jessica Piombo, have authored an article with Naomi Levy of Santa Clara University, titled “Disentangling Aid Dynamics in Statebuilding and Peacebuilding: A Causal Framework.” It was published in the most recent issue of International Peacekeeping.
