The Reputational Effects of the Syria Strikes

April 23, 2018

Episode Notes:

Danielle Lupton, Assistant Professor of Political Science at Colgate University, applies her research on leadership reputations of resolve to the case of the U.S.-France-U.K. strikes on Syria. That research suggests that these strikes did not signal resolve, nor will that reputation be easily repaired. Danielle also discusses the implications of these strikes on negotiations with North Korea.
