Revenue Sharing in Iraq: When IPE Meets Security Studies

. Thursday, January 15, 2009

Christopher Dittmeier, a fellow graduate student at UNC, recently published an article in Georgetown's Democracy and Society on the issues surrounding the elusiveness of a revenue sharing agreement in Iraq. It's a good look at an important (and under-covered) issue, and it highlights the difficulties of reaching an agreement, despite the importance of such an agreement for the security, stability, and legitimacy of the nascent Iraqi state. It may be found here [pdf].

Chris specializes in the Security Studies side of International Relations (boo! hiss!), but in this case as with many others there is significant overlap with IPE. His article is good illustration of that.
