About Charles Boehmer

Thank you for visiting my research page. I have research projects on several topics. The majority of my research combines the study of economics and politics. One of my more prominent lines of research is on intergovernmental organizations (IGOs). My article in World Politics examined the effects of IGOs on interstate conflict, whereas my article in International Interactions examined the state determinants of IGO joining. A current project examines the effects of regional integration agreements on economic growth.
My other published articles and working papers encompass international political economy. I have examined the effects of state development on interstate conflict in Journal of Peace Research. My work on the role of international investment, monetary cooperation, and interstate conflict has been published in International Organization. Current projects include the effects of missing trade data on conflict models, the economic determinants of immigration policies (cross-nationally), the effects of food deprivation on civil war, and lateral pressure from economic growth on war. Some of my future research will also study the effects of economics on religious views and terrorism.
