Biography / Academic Interests :
Professor Niv-Solomon’s research interests fall under one of two themes, the first being the forces involved in foreign policy decision making (focusing on security and human rights), and the second being negotiations and mediations in international conflict resolution cases. Professor Niv-Solomon is engaged in various research projects including a study on potential conflict spirals and the turning points that transform them into protracted conflicts or cooperative resolutions, and another that focuses on US Presidents as mediators in international disputes; her work is regularly presented in professional conference.

Dr. Niv-Solomon is teaching courses in international politics, security, human-rights, negotiations and terrorism; before coming to the College of Staten Island, Professor Niv-Solomon has taught at Clark University.
