Bringing Political Science to Opinio Juris: Introducing Guest-Blogger Seth Weinberger

Although those of us who blog here on a permanent basis come from a variety of perspectives, all of us are legal academics and no doubt our posts reflect the thinking of international lawyers.

But there are other ways of looking at international relations, of course, especially from the discipline of political science. That is why we at Opinio Juris are very pleased to have Professor Seth Weinberger, a scholar of international relations, as a guest blogger for the next few weeks. Professor Weinberger teaches courses on international relations, US foreign policy, international security, terrorism, and political philosophy at the University of Puget Sound. His most recent n article is entitled "Institutional Signaling and the Origins of the Cold War" in the journal Security Studies (Summer 2003). His current research focuses on the signaling applications of international legal negotiations. Before getting his doctorate in political science from Duke University, he worked for the Strategic Assessment Center of Science Applications International Corporation as a Defense Analyst, where he designed strategic war games and workshops on issues such as the proliferation of nuclear weapons, the future of the Air Force, robotics, and biotechnology.

Between Duncan and Seth, we are very lucky to have such accomplished guest-bloggers over the next few weeks. Welcome!
