Jason Quinn, a research assistant director for the Kroc Institute’s Peace Accords Matrix, helps oversee a research and data coding effort on the implementation of peace agreements worldwide. He earned his Ph.D. in comparative politics and international relations from the University of North Texas in 2010.
Quinn's research and teaching centers on conflict and peace studies, with a special focus on civil conflict management and resolution, the duration of peace following civil war, and spatial patterns of terrorism and state repression in counterinsurgency. He has published research on these topics in journals such as International Studies Perspectives and International Interactions and in anthologies such as Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding in Post-War Societies (Routledge).
In June 2012, Quinn and Madhav Joshi authored a policy briefing paper for the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the design and implementation of disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) provisions in peace accords.
