Sarah Stroup

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – Associate Professor of Political Science Sarah Stroup and collaborators from Concordia University (Canada) and the University of Toronto were awarded grant funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada for a five year project titled “The rise and demise of INGOs (international non-governmental organizations).”

The research team is tracing how organizational features and social networks in different national contexts shape the rise and demise of INGOs around the world and the project will result in a new global data set on INGOs. The grant will help support Stroup’s academic leave in 2019-20 and the research will inform her teaching about global politics and the role of NGOs and philanthropy.

Stroup teaches courses in political science and international studies, covering such subjects as the politics of humanitarianism, international political economy, and non-state actors in world politics.
