Amira Jadoon with Andrew Mines
Welcome to my website!
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Clemson University. Prior to joining Clemson in Fall 2022, I worked at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point (2017-2022), where I was jointly appointed in the Dept. of Social Sciences, and the Combating Terrorism Center.
My research projects relate to the topics of international, state, and human security. Within these overarching areas, my work delves into the complex interplay between international security policies and domestic conflict processes and explores their effects on the nature and magnitude of political violence and terrorism. In sum, my research focuses on the following key themes:
The effectiveness of international security and counterterrorism policies to promote global security, and constrain transnational and domestic terrorism
The direct and indirect consequences of political violence and terrorism on state and human security
The sociopolitical drivers of terrorism in South and Central Asia and the trajectories of regional militant groups, including inter-group alliances and rivalries
