Kerstin Fisk’s research focuses on issues of security, peace, and conflict, with an emphasis on forced migration and political violence. She received a Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate University in 2013. Her dissertation, entitled “Moving Targets: Refugee Geography and the Diffusion of Conflict and Violence in Africa,” investigates how refugee settlement patterns affect patterns of violence by state and non-state armed actors in African conflicts. Her recent work also includes “Actions Speak Louder than Words: Preventive Self-Defense as a Cascading Norm” with Jennifer M. Ramos, published in International Studies Perspectives. She co-organized a conference held in April 2014 at LMU on Preventive Force: Target Killings and Technology and is currently co-editing a volume on the rise of the preventive use of force.
