Negar’s research is on the effectiveness of intervention in prolonged conflicts. Her PhD research is on the effectiveness of economic sanctions used as a foreign policy tool. She looks at the impact of economic sanctions on the microeconomics and domestic politics of the country targeted by sanctions to assess the effectiveness of sanctions policies. She has also carried out work on climate stress and violent conflict. She uses game theory, time series analysis and spatial econometrics in carrying out her research.
