Neill's research interests lie primarily in the fields of international security theory, comparative foreign policy and public opinion. In his dissertation, he examines the overlap between security theory, which identifies retrospective voting within democracies as the cause of regime-dependent international behavior, and behavioral politics, which suggests that accurate retrospective voting is in fact rather rare. The vulnerability of mass opinion--what the theoretical literature describes as "resolve"--to elite suggestion suggests that extant research into electoral constraints and international politics is incomplete.
