Dara Kay Cohen, assistant professor of public policy, is a co-recipient of the American Political Science Association's 2014 Heinz I. Eulau Award.

Cohen is recognized for her article in the American Political Science Review, “Explaining Rape during Civil War: Cross National Evidence (1980-2009).”

“I'm deeply honored to have my work on wartime rape recognized by members of my profession for this prestigious award. I hope that the award will serve to bring further focus — both from academic scholars and policymakers — to the plight of victims and survivors of rape and other forms of sexual violence,” says Cohen.

The Heinz Eulau prize is awarded annually for the best article published in the American Political Science Review and for the best article published in Perspectives on Politics during the calendar year.

The American Political Science Association (APSA) brings together political scientists from all fields and all sectors to help expand awareness and understanding of politics.

Cohen’s research and teaching interests span the field of international relations including international security, civil war and the dynamics of violence during conflict, and gender and international relations.
