Professor Carolyn Stephenson


I received a B.A. from Mount Holyoke College and a Ph.D. from Ohio State (1980). Before coming to UH in 1985 I was Director of Peace Studies at Colgate University, and a Scholar–in–Residence at Radcliffe.

I am currently a member of the graduate faculty in Population Studies, where I teach on gender, population, and the environment, and participate in the Program on Conflict Resolution. I also direct the Hawai'i Model United Nations, in which graduate student involvement is welcome.

Research Interests

My major research is in three areas: 1) alternative international security systems, including mediation, sanctions, nonviolent action, and peacekeeping, 2) non–governmental organizations and United Nations conference diplomacy in the areas of environment, women, and disarmament, and 3) gender, conflict and conflict resolution.
