A recognized expert in political theory and global security issues, Kateri Carmola, PhD, possesses an accomplished background in her field. Her 2010 book, Private Security Contractors in the Age of New Wars: Risk, Law & Ethics, addresses the prevalence of private military contractors as well as the legal and ethical issues surrounding their use.

Now a visiting research scholar at Vermont’s Middlebury College, Kateri Carmola previously taught courses in political philosophy and warfare at the institution. Her teaching and writing work centers on humanitarian law, international security, and the laws of war. Published in multiple journals and books, she delves into the cultures of the military and private contractors. Kateri Carmola’s current work focuses on counterinsurgency warfare in the military and the theories behind its use.

Outside of writing and teaching, her expertise garners her frequent invitations to attend events held within the United States and abroad.
