Seden Akcinaroglu specializes in international conflict and rivalries. Her main interest lies in unraveling the linkages between expectations, informational problems, learning and strategic action in the dynamics of civil wars or rivalries. Some of her past work focuses on expectations of rival aid and the duration of war, natural disasters and rivalry relations and the effectiveness of bluffing by external actors in civil wars. Her current project examines how expectations in the intensity of rivalry with one foe affect the actions of a strategic state with others.
Akcinaroglu teaches courses on international conflict and international political economy. She joined the Binghamton faculty in 2008.
