25.11.2010 Seminar on Political Sociology
Dr Giacomo Chiozza is a student and scholar of International Relations and International Security. He is an expert on the study of attitudes towards U.S. power and the study of political leaders in conflict processes. For this particular seminar, Dr Chiozza will present his current research on the whether 'affection and popular approval trump fear and self-interest in the promotion of the security of US soldiers in Iraq.' Methodologically, he will demonstrate a Classification and Regression Tree (CART) model that allows for 'a parsimonious identification of non-linear effects in the data.' See our events page for a copy of the paper to be discussed.
