I have taught modules at all levels and currently I am module leader for “Sovereignty and Intervention After the Cold War”, “Humanitarian Intervention and International Relations” and “Contemporary Controversies in International Security”.
I have published a number of books, articles and book chapters on issues related to humanitarian intervention. I am part of a group which was awarded a grant by the ESRC for a two year project on “The Responsibility to Protect and Prosecute: The Political Sustainability of Liberal Norms in an Age of Shifting Power balances”. I am also Co-Convenor of the BISA Working Group on Intervention and the Responsibility to Protect. I have regularly contributed to current affairs debates through newspapers, blogs, radio and television. Currently I am supervising three PhD students and I am a member of BISA, the ISA and the PSAI.
