Naomi Egel was awarded a Fulbright Program/Swiss Government Excellence Scholarship to support her dissertation research

Naomi Egel

Egel, a PhD candidate in the Government Department and former Reppy Director’s fellow, will spend twelve months as a visiting researcher at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland. Her dissertation examines why states pursue multilateral agreements to regulate weapons, and how different motivations affect the design and content of agreements. In doing so, it also explores how different agreements are related to each other and the lessons from past agreement different actors draw upon in designing new agreements to regulate weapons. In Geneva, Egel will conduct interviews and carry out archival research to understand the dynamics involved in such agreements.
