I have a Joint Honours Degree in History & Politics at the University of Strathclyde in my native Glasgow, before studying for my Masters in Comparative and Transnational History at Central Michigan University in the USA.
Presently at Leeds I am researching the sustainability of international society given normative contestation to do with questions of intervention.
Specifically I am considering whether the P3 states practice in Cote d’Ivoire, Libya and Syria can be characterised as Liberal Vanguardism, which could pose a threat to the sustainability of international society – in spite of their intentions.
Recent ACUNS Activity
ACUNS were of great assistance to me when I last conducted research at the UN in New York in November 2014
