Helen V. Milner has written extensively on issues related to international and comparative political economy, the connections between domestic politics and foreign policy, globalization and regionalism, and the relationship between democracy and trade policy. Another strand of her recent research deals with American foreign policy and the so-called grand strategy of "Liberal Internationalism." She investigates the sources of public and elite preferences for international engagement and the role of the President (vs Congress) in setting foreign policy. Her newest book is Sailing the Water’s Edge: Domestic Politics and American Foreign Policy, coauthored with Dustin Tingley (Princeton University Press, 2015). It won the 2016 Gladys M. Kammerer Award for the best book published in the field of U.S. national policy. Another strand of resdearch concerns issues related to globalization and development, such as the political economy of foreign aid, the "digital divide" and the global diffusion of the internet, and the relationship between globalization and democracy.
