Wisam Alshaibi

Doctoral Student: UCLA Department of Sociology

I am a political sociologist of war. My dissertation examines the making of the 2003 invasion and occupation of Iraq, with a focus on the relationship between the Department of Defense, CIA, State Department and Iraqi opposition movements. I use this case to investigate broader questions about the role of experts in wartime, the instrumental use of human rights discourse, and the micro-politics of political violence.
