Research Interests

  • My research interests are in the broad areas of comparative ethno-national conflict and peace agreements, international security and foreign policy, Northern Ireland and South Asia.  
  • My recent publications have focused on the Northern Ireland peace process and the consequences of the decision by the UK to leave the European Union for the constitutional and political future of the Ireland of Ireland.  I also remain actively interested in peacebuilding in South Asia.  I am also working with colleague Gezim Visoka on some more conceptual work on peace building in the Balkans.
