This fall, the Kroc Institute welcomed two new faculty members who bring diverse experience in gender and peace studies and international political economy, policy and armed conflict. Ashley Bohrer and Rachel Sweet are among five new faculty members appointed in fall 2019 by the Keough School of Global Affairs at the University of Notre Dame.
"The hiring of Ashley Bohrer and Rachel Sweet is in line with the Kroc Institute’s five-year strategic plan," said Asher Kaufman, the John M. Regan, Jr., Director of the Kroc Institute. "Both add significant strength to the Institute’s educational programs and research profile. Ashley’s research on intersectionality, oppression and exploitation highlights our commitment to integrating and mainstreaming gender, class and race within the field of peace studies, and Rachel’s focus on armed conflict, governance and state capacity in fragile environments, and her emphasis on the policy implications of her work, fills an important gap for the Institute."
