Rachel Stein

Rachel Stein is Assistant Professor of Political Science at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Her research interests include public opinion about foreign policy, the domestic politics of international conflict in democratic states, the role of culture and norms in political processes, and experimental methods. During 2015-2016, as a visiting scholar at both the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics and the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance, she will be working on a book project examining the American culture of revenge and its effects on public support for the use of military force. A related project, demonstrating that democracies with more vengeful populations are more likely to initiate military conflicts, is forthcoming in the American Political Science Review.
