Dr. Luke Campbell, assistant professor of political science at Northwest Missouri State University, is the co-author of a study, titled “Military Aid and Human Rights: Assessing the Impact of U.S. Security Assistance Programs,” published recently in Political Science Quarterly.

The study reviewed U.S. security assistance programs funded and administered by the U.S. departments of State and Defense between 1995 and 2012, including the dollars allocated to them and the total number of trained foreign military. The study also examined the International Military Education and Training program, which provides grant funding for education and training programs for foreign military personnel.

Campbell joined the Northwest faculty last fall, and his primary research interests include international relations theory, international ethics and U.S. foreign policy. He earned his Ph.D. in political science from the University of Kansas, a master’s degree in political science from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and a bachelor’s degree in political science and history from William Jewell College.

Dr. Mariya Omelicheva, a University of Kansas associate professor of political science, was lead author of the study with Campbell and Brittnee Carter, a doctoral student in the KU Department of Political Science.
