A paper co-authored by two Kellogg Institute faculty fellows and a doctoral student affiliate has received an award from the American Political Science Association (APSA). 

“Does It Matter if You ‘Believe’ in Climate Change? The Example of Coastal Home Vulnerability” was co-authored by Debra Javeline, an associate professor of political science; Tracy Kijewski-Correa, the Leo E. and Patti Ruth Linbeck Collegiate Chair in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering & Earth Sciences and an associate professor of global affairs in the Keough School of Global Affairs; and Angela Chesler, who is completing her PhD in peace studies and political science through the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies
