Zoltán Buzás received his Ph.D. in Political Science at The Ohio State University in June 2012. His dissertation, Race and International Politics, provides a racial theory of international politics according to which under certain conditions racial prejudices embedded in racial identities can shape international patterns of discord and cooperation. The explanatory power of the theory is illustrated in detailed case studies of the demise of the Anglo-Japanese Alliance (1923), the achievement of the Limited Test Ban Treaty (1963), and the passage of the Exon-Florio Amendment (1988). In addition, Zoltán is interested in IR theory, international security, threat perception and manipulation, and qualitative methods.
