Comparative & International Relations: Post-Conflict Politics, Peacebuilding, African Politics
Carrie Manning was appointed as Associate Provost for International Initiatives effective Oct. 1, 2023, after serving in an interim capacity since March 2023, and is a Professor of Political Science at Georgia State University.
She is the author of three books and more than two dozen journal articles and contributions to edited volumes. Her work on comparative democratization and post-conflict politics has been published in such journals as Comparative Politics, Journal of Democracy, Party Politics, Studies in Comparative International Development, and Democratization, among others. Her most recent book, Costly Democracy: Building Democracy after Civil War (Stanford University Press, 2013), co-authored with Christoph Zurcher and others, seeks to explain success and failure in post-conflict democratization using a cross-regional comparison of nine countries.
Her second book, The Making of Democrats: Elections and Party Development in Post-War Bosnia, El Salvador and Mozambique (Palgrave MacMillan, 2008) examines the impact of participation in electoral politics over a ten-year period on former armed opposition groups turned parties in each of these cases. Her first book, The Politics of Peace in Mozambique (Praeger 2002), traces the dual process of war termination and democratization in that country from 1992-2000. She lived in southern Africa from 1994-1998 and served as Country Director for the National Democratic Institute in Angola in 1997-98. She has conducted seminars in civil-military relations in more than a dozen African countries. Manning holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley (1997), an MPA from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University (1991), and a BA from Wesleyan Univeristy (1986).
