Faculty & Research Research Speakers Sarah Bermeo Faculty Research Speaker Series Sarah Bermeo Associate Professor in the Sanford School of Public Policy, Duke University Feb 07, 2020 12:00 PM GARRETT HALL SEMINAR ROOM Sarah Bermeo is Associate Professor of Public Policy and Political Science in the Sanford School at Duke University. Her research lies at the intersection of international relations and development, with a particular focus on relations between industrialized and developing countries. Her book, Targeted Development: Industrialized Country Strategy in a Globalizing World (Oxford, 2018), demonstrates that the desire to limit negative spillovers leads industrialized states to allocate foreign aid, trade agreements, and climate finance across developing countries in a development-oriented, but also self-interested, manner. Her new book project, Complementary Multilateralism, examines the international development regime with a focus on institutional design. Bermeo has published articles in International Organization, Journal of Politics, and World Development.
