Politics PhD

What's the focus of your research programme?

My research interrogates the idea that a reform to the Security Council could lead to effective, efficient and perhaps, consistent response to genocides; ethnic cleansings; war crimes; and crimes against humanity. It proceeds by comprehensively and critically engaging a host of proposals for expanding the Council and reforming its working methods.

The intention is to ascertain the feasibility of any of the proposals to qualitatively improve the responsibility to protect. The thesis also examines the centrality of force deployment to the operationalisation of R2P.

What other activities have you been involved in?

I am a Teaching Assistant on the Introduction to International Politics unit. This includes course administration and planning, tutorials, and marking of essays and exams.
