On the Market, Spencer Shanks

Spencer Shanks

“Spencer’s work uses experimental simulation design to integrate the classroom into foreign policy research. His work shows: (1) student learning outcomes are higher for those exposed to simulations; (2) women (she/her) and men (he/him) have different determinants of negotiation success in domestic and international negotiations; and (3) security interests are over-represented in economic negotiations.”
