Rachel J. Schoner

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, San Diego. My research focuses on non-state actor access in international institutions and the role individuals play in global politics. Motivated by protecting individual rights and liberties in the most repressive societies, I study how political actors mobilize in international legal institutions to change the behavior of repressive governments and improve respect for human rights.

Originally from Virginia, I am a proud alumna of Emory University, where I jointly received my BA in Mathematics and Political Science and MA in Political Science in 2015.

I am on the academic job market this year, 2021-2022.
