Ms. McGann combines a background in governance and rule of law with deep interest in conflict indicators, data analysis, and applied technological solutions to justice and security challenges. Her professional efforts are targeted at delivering research-driven, context-specific solutions to systemic challenges in international development, governance, and security policy.

She joined USIP in June 2014 as a program assistant with the International Network to Promote the Rule of Law (INPROL), a global community of practice for policing and rule of law practitioners and researchers, focused primarily on justice sector reform in Afghanistan. Bethany joined the Researching Solutions to Violent Extremism (RESOLVE) Network in 2016, supporting research, coordinating communications, and managing the online Network Knowledge Platform.
