A New Op-Ed and Other Things

I've written an op-ed for Palestine in America titled "Do Palestinians Need a UN Protection Force?" Recently, there have been some calls to deploy an international protection force to the West Bank and Gaza. While I sympathize with these calls I ultimately think this would be a bad idea in practice.  

Additionally, I've been writing on this blog for almost a year. It's been a combination of posts that are pure polemic and other posts that are more data-driven/theory driven polemic. I think I from now on I am going to stick to the latter. The blog will continue to be unapologetically polemic but interspersed with more of my discipline. Expect more posts like "Who Gets Mourned?" and "Free Trade and the Trans-Pacific Partnership." Thanks for reading!
