Benjamin T. Jones


Hello. I am an assistant professor in the department of Political Science at the University of Mississippi. My research focuses on international relations and political methodology. In particular, I am interested in the dynamic nature of intrastate conflict, the role of third-parties in civil wars, the use of foreign public diplomacy by governments and rebel organizations in civil wars, and why states dismantle their nuclear programs. Methodologically, I am interested in modeling the role of time in political phenomena and capturing complexity more generally.
