Bio/Research

Douglas Kriner is an associate professor of political science and the Director of Undergraduate Studies. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa from MIT in 2001 and received his Ph.D. in Government from Harvard University in 2006. His first book (with Francis Shen), The Casualty Gap: The Causes and Consequences of American Military Policymaking, documents the emergence, beginning in the Korean War, of socioeconomic inequalities in who bears the human costs of war. It then traces the ramifications of these inequalities for politics and policy-making.

His second book, After the Rubicon: Congress, Presidents, and the Politics of Waging War, investigates the mechanisms through which Congress shapes the initiation, conduct and duration of major American military actions, even when it fails to write its policy preferences into law. Professor Kriner’s work has also appeared in the Journal of Politics, the British Journal of Political Science, Legislative Studies Quarterly, Public Opinion Quarterly, Presidential Studies Quarterly, and the Boston University Law Review. Professor Kriner’s teaching interests include courses on the presidency, Congress, domestic politics and the use of force, separation of powers, and quantitative methods.
