My Research Vision
I am motivated by my experience of working with people living with conflict across the Middle East, Central Asia and Horn of Africa as well as in the UK. I thrive in a team of many faiths and backgrounds where work addresses root causes, is based on shared values and critical analysis, and is impact-oriented. As the leader of the research group in Nonviolence and Conflict Transformation I am keen to develop understanding of how nonviolent actions can achieve strategic goals and transform conflict based on inclusive political processes.
