Smuggling My Way Into Academe

March 27, 2017 The Chronicle of Higher Education

Political science professor Peter Andreas in The Chronicle of Higher Education, "For most of my career, I carefully followed that academic script. When asked why I study border policing, I would dryly reply that it provides analytical insight into how states cope with the stresses and strains of territorial control in an increasingly globalized world; or when asked why I’m interested in cross-border smuggling, I’d reply that the illicit side of globalization receives too little attention from international-relations scholars despite its growing importance."
