Craig Lang

Adjunct Faculty

Politics and International Relations



Before joining FIU in 2011, I worked as a Foreign Affairs Officer at the U.S. Department of State for over ten years, including overseas assignments in Kosovo and Colombia. My experience in the field has driven many of my research interests and questions, specifically how to build and strengthen democracy and the rule of law in transitional societies. Regionally, I am focused on Latin American comparative politics, but also researching East Asia's growing role in the aforementioned region. The FIU doctoral program is rigorous yet balanced, and if you have any questions about it or my research, feel free to contact me.
