Erin Graham has been a Kellogg faculty fellow since 2023 and is associate professor of global affairs in the Keough School of Global Affairs at the University of Notre Dame. Her research focuses on the design, financing, and development of international rules and organizations. 

One strand of her research focuses on how different methods of funding international organizations, like the United Nations and World Bank, affect which states and private actors exert control over the organization’s policies and programs. Her work explores how large donors design and deploy funding rules and practices that allow them to exert unilateral influence at international organizations, undermining ostensibly multilateral governance.

Graham’s research is published in the Journal of Politics, International Organization, International Studies Quarterly, European Journal of International Relations, International Theory, Review of International Organizations, British Journal of Political Science, Global Policy, PS: Political Science and Politics, and in edited volumes at Oxford and Cambridge University Press.

Her policy commentary on issues pertaining to the United Nations and international climate finance at the Monkey Cage (Washington Post), The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, and Mother Jones.
