Biography

Javeline's publications include Protest and the Politics of Blame: The Russian Response to Unpaid Wages (University of Michigan Press, 2003) and articles in The American Political Science Review, Comparative Political Studies, Political Research Quarterly,Public Opinion Quarterly, Law & Society Review, Problems of Post-Communism, Social Science & Medicine, Policy Sciences, and Bioscience.  Recent articles are “The Most Important Topic Political Scientists are Not Studying: Adapting to Climate Change” (Perspectives on Politics, 2014) and “Expert Opinion on Extinction Risk and Climate Change Adaptation” (Elementa: Science for the Anthropocene, 2015).

Javeline divides her time between the study of Russia and the study of global environmental problems, especially climate change.  Her two current book projects are After Violence: The Beslan School Massacre and the Peace that Followed and Solutions: Science, Politics, and Saving the Planet.  She is also collaborating with Notre Dame engineers on a research project on “Coastal Homeownership in a Changing Climate: A Study of Risk Awareness, Risk Reduction, and Resilience.”  With scholars of environmental governance, she has planned a workshop for spring 2017 on “Adapting to Climate Change: Actions, Implementations, and Outcomes,” sponsored by the University of Notre Dame and the University of Washington.  With a Notre Dame undergraduate biologist, she is collaborating on a book chapter, “Adaptation of Ecosystems in the Anthropocene,” to be published in Research Handbook on Climate Change Adaptation Policy with Edward Elgar Publishing, and with other biologists, she continues to work on issues related to climate change and scientific opinion.  She and Sarah Lindemann-Komarova are updating their 2010 work in Journal of International Affairs for an article on "Civil Society in 'Putin's Russia.'"

Javeline has conducted survey research in the former Soviet Union for the U.S. Information Agency (now State Department) and the U.S. Agency for International Development. She has held fellowships from Fulbright-Hays, Mellon, ACTR, FLAS, Harvard University's Davis Center for Russian Studies, the University of Colorado's Institute of Behavioral Science, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the National Science Foundation, and the National Council for Eurasian and East European Research. In 2011-12, she was supported by a Mellon New Directions fellowship to study ecology and environmental law.
