Arturo C. Sotomayor is Associate Professor of International Affairs and Director of the Security Policy Studies Program at the Elliott School of International Affairs. His areas of interest include civil-military relations in Latin America; UN peacekeeping participation by South American countries; Latin American comparative foreign policy, and nuclear policy in Argentina, Brazil and Mexico. His research analyzes the impact of international socialization, militarization, and denuclearization in three areas: 1) military operations other than war (MOOTW); 2) trans-national and border security; and 3) regional non-proliferation strategies. The unifying thread that runs through his research and writing is the interaction between studies on civil-military relations and international security, and research on the conditions and requirements for domestic order and regional stability in Latin America.
He was a post-doctoral fellow at CIPR in 2008.
