My current research is on the role normative ideas play in how states make peace, and how these ideas change over time.
Joseph O'Mahoney joined the School of Diplomacy and International
Relations as an Assistant Professor in 2013. His primary research
agenda is in international norm dynamics and the politics of peace
settlements. Other research interests include international symbolic
sanctions, the termination of interstate wars, and change in
international norms and institutions. He is also interested in research
design and methodology, in particular issues of the interpretation of
data, both qualitative and quantitative.
O'Mahoney teaches classes in international relations theory and
research methods. Prior to joining Seton Hall, he taught at Brown
University and George Washington University.
