Arthur Stein is currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Montreal, under the co-supervision of Marie-Joelle Zahar and Lee J. M. Seymour. His doctoral research focuses on the consequences of armed state support for insurgent groups during civil wars. More broadly, his academic interests focus on the role of non-state armed groups during internal conflicts, and in particular on their treatment of civilian populations and their influence on the return to peace and the building of stable institutions. Prior to his doctoral studies, he obtained a master’s degree in political science from the Institute of Political Studies in Strasbourg (France). He was also an intern at the United Nations Office in Geneva (Switzerland) and worked for several months for a humanitarian organization working in the field of the fight against child malnutrition in Léogâne (Haiti).
