Best Book Award for Erickson

Dangerous Trade: Conventional Arms Exports, Human Rights, and International Reputation (Columbia University Press), written by Associate Professor of Political Science and International Studies Jennifer L. Ericksonwas awarded the 2017 Best Book Award by the Foreign Policy Section of American Political Science Association. Dangerous Trade explains why major arms exporting democracies have come to support new humanitarian arms trade norms, articulated in the new UN Arms Trade Treaty and related multilateral initiatives, intended to restrict small and major conventional arms exports to human rights violators and conflict zones. Yet it also shows that states’ compliance with new norms in practice has so far been limited. Dangerous Trade makes important and timely contributions to the study of international security and arms control and government transparency and accountability.
