Recent professional news and achievements for Webster University faculty members include:
Belo Paper on Ukraine's 'Forever War'
Assistant Professor of International Relations Dani Belo co-authored the policy paper, "Ukraine’s Forever War: Assessing the Domestic and International Barriers to Lasting Peace." The paper, co-authored with David Carment, appears in Peace Diplomacy and can be accessed here.
"Designed for audiences both domestic and beyond the region, Ukraine has devised a strategy intended to direct attention towards Russian intransigence and away from Kyiv’s chronic ineffectiveness," they write. "Such attention ensures that the US remains concentrated on punishing Russia, in addition to mobilizing allies and supporting Ukraine’s weak leadership."
