Karina shines with a dissertation on democracy support and peaceful post-conflict democratization
In April 2019, Karina Mross successfully defended her PhD on democracy support and peaceful democratization after civil war.
The findings in a nutshell: International democracy support can effectively foster peace when accompanying post-conflict democratization. It can mitigate destabilizing effects of democratic transitions and, importantly, it is not linked to conflict recurrence.
