Hi, my name is Jillienne Haglund and I am a Ph.D. Candidate in political science at Florida State University. My primary research interests fall broadly in the fields of international relations and comparative politics, including a more specific focus on human rights, international organizations, international law, domestic political institutions, and quantitative methodology. Existing work suggests that because international legal bodies lack formal enforcement authority, they exhibit little to no influence on state behavior. My work seeks to better illuminate the extent to which international law constrains state behavior. Specifically, I draw connections across international relations and comparative politics by investigating relationships among international and domestic political institutions.
I received my B.A. in political science from Montana State University - Bozeman in 2007. I earned an M.A. in political science from the University of Memphis in 2009 and expect to receive my Ph.D. from Florida State University in 2014.
