Wisam Alshaibi

Doctoral Student: UCLA Department of Sociology

I am a political sociologist of war. My dissertation examines why the United States went to war with Iraq in 2003. I use this case to explore theoretical questions about propaganda and legitimization of violence, knowledge production and manipulation, and the ties between informal networks of political exiles and the formal decision making machinery of the state.
