Visiting Assistant Professor

Dr. Iuliia Hoban holds a Ph.D. in Global Affairs from Rutgers University, a Masters in International Development from the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver, and a B.A. in History from the National University "Kyiv-Mohyla Academy" along with a certificate in the History of Diplomacy. Before joining Radford, Dr. Hoban taught at The College of New Jersey. In Radford, she will be teaching a variety of courses including International Relations and Introduction to Politics. Dr. Hoban uses group activities, class facilitation, debates, and integrates undergraduate research in her curriculum to promote skills for independent critical thinking and problem-solving for students.

Her research interests are in international security and conflict in areas of inquiry, which deal with issues of childhood across various settings. Her current research explores the variation in counter-terrorism responses of liberal democracies toward children who were recruited to participate in conflicts in the Middle East and ultimately returned to their home countries.  Other interests include issues that emerge from the dynamic interrelationship between law and war. 

Iuliia also applied her research skills in NGOs and think tanks such as Watchlist for Children and Armed Conflict (New York, NY), the Institute of World Policy (Kyiv, Ukraine) and the Laboratory to Combat Human Trafficking (Denver, CO) where her major responsibilities focused on analysis and research of multidimensional factors and aspects of human rights violations.
