Olivier Henripin is the Helen Houlahan Rigali Assistant Professor of Political Science at Loyola. His research and teaching focuses on the areas of international relations and game-theoretic methods. His current book project, entitled Manufacturing Homelands, examines the strategic social construction of indivisibility in territorial disputes and the conditions under which indivisibility fosters dispute intractability or facilitates peaceful dispute resolution. His broader research interests include Chinese foreign relations and the strategic linkages between domestic politics and international bargaining and conflict. Prior to joining Loyola, he was a pre- and post-doctoral fellow at the Institute for Security and Conflict Studies at the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University (2013–5) and a visiting scholar in the Department of Diplomacy and Center for Foreign Policy Studies at the National Chengchi University in Taiwan (2010–1).
