Professor, School of International Relations, University of St Andrews

My primary research interest lies in examining grassroots perspectives and marginalised actors within the international system, and in particular in considering how their incorporation into the IR discourse may change the questions raised within the discipline itself, as well as in its sub-fields. This has included a body of work on the place of children and youth in the international system and an ongoing examination into questions of rights and agency. I am currently working on issues surrounding the rights and representations of indigenous peoples, in North America and in East Africa, and am part of the research project - with Bennett Collins (St Andrews and Oxford) - 'Constructing the Maine Wabanaki-State TRC: Perceptions and Understandings'.
