Dr. Reyko Huang Granted Tenure

July 08, 2019

The Board of Regents has granted tenure to Dr. Reyko Huang, and she has been promoted to associate professor in the Department of International Affairs at the Bush School of Government and Public Service, Texas A&M University. 

Huang holds a PhD in political science from Columbia University, an MPA from the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University, and a BA in government and economics from Cornell University. Her book, The Wartime Origins of Democratization: Civil War, Rebel Governance, and Political Regimes (Cambridge University Press, 2016), explores the social and institutional impacts of violent rebellion and their effects on postwar politics. Her work has appeared in International Studies Quarterly and International Security, among other journals.  She teaches courses on civil wars, statebuilding, and transnational security.

Dr. Gregory Gause, Head of the Department of International Affairs, said that Dr. Huang’s promotion and tenure are very well deserved.  “She is a leading member of a cohort of younger scholars who are advancing our knowledge about civil wars and how they affect post-war political reconstruction,” Gause said.
