Ph.D. Student in International Relations

Rachel Hulvey is currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania. Her research lies at the intersection of international law, international organizations, and internet governance. Her dissertation project focuses on the impact of China's ideological socialization on preferences for the legalization of cyberspace. Using a mixed-methods approach, she examines how China uses normative tools to influence contestation around the application of existing international law and the vitality of multistakeholder norms. Her research has implications for understanding how international orders are contested. Rachel's research is supported by the Browne Center, the Foreign Language Area Studies Award, and the Center for Contemporary China at the University of Pennsylvania. She is currently a fellow at the Carr Center's program on technology and human rights.
