My name is Alexandra Hartman. I am an Associate Professor of Political Science and Public Policy at University College London (UCL).
I study the social origins of violence and how individuals, communities and states construct order. I use RCTs, survey experiments, micro-level data, and in-depth field research to understand the effects of property rights on conflict, natural resource management, and economic development and how violence affects individuals’ willingness to help others.
I am thankful for the support of The National Science Foundation, The Norwegian Refugee Council, EGAP, ELRHA, Landesa, DfID, UNHCR, USAID, The International Growth Centre, UCL and Yale University. My work has been published or is forthcoming in PNAS, International Organization, The Journal of Conflict Resolution, The Journal of Politics, The British Journal of Political Science, The Journal of Peace Research, and The American Political Science Review.
