Bola Adediran is a third-year Doctoral Candidate at the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom. His research interrogates assumptions that both formal and informal reform to the Security Council or institutional attempts to circumvent the Security Council could lead to effective, efficient and perhaps, consistent responses to genocides; ethnic cleansing; war crimes; and crimes against humanity. His research interest spans genocide studies; human rights discourses; the responsibility to protect; peace-keeping; humanitarian intervention; sovereignty discourses and regional organisations. He has presented his research at several academic conferences and he is willing to provide public commentary on institutional responses to mass atrocity crimes.
