About Megan Shannon

I study how international institutions influence human and interstate security. My work builds from the premise that international and civil violence occur because relevant political actors cannot commit to ceasing violent behavior. I show that international law and organizations help actors overcome commitment problems, forgo the use of violence, and reach peaceful settlements.
