About Me:

Faten Ghosn (Ph.D., Pennsylvania State University) is currently an Associate Professor in the School of Government and Public Policy and Faculty in the School of Middle Eastern and North African Studies and the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Arizona. Her research and teaching interests focus on the interaction of adversaries, be they conflictual or cooperative. In particular, she has been interested in how such actors handle their disagreements. A common theme running throughout her professional interests is the importance of the choice of strategy that is picked by the adversaries to manage their conflicts, and how such strategies and policies are implemented, particularly in the post-conflict setting. Her articles have appeared in the British Journal of Political Science, Conflict Management and Peace Science, International Journal of Human Rights, International Negotiation, International Studies Quarterly, as well as Middle East Journal.
