UTA professor's new book explores international response time to foreign conflicts

She added: "Given that scholars have shown interventions to have a positive impact, the question remained why international actors consistently take months to engage. These delays cost lives."

Hardt builds on an original database of response rates concerning post Cold War interventions and on personal interviews with 50 ambassadors and numerous staff at four leading international organizations: the African Union, European Union, Organization of American States, and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe.

One policy recommendation calls for organizations to reallocate resources to hold fewer formal meetings and to foster more opportunities for backdoor diplomacy.
