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 OrganizationJournal of Politics, and World Development
