Daniel Kirkpatrick

Research Fellow, Conflict Analysis Research Centre, University of Kent

I am currently a Research Fellow with the Conflict Analysis Research Centre at the University of Kent. I have previously worked as a Lecturer in the Department of Politics and International Relations convening modules specialising in conflict analysis and terrorism studies at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

My research focuses on the relationship between criminalising political expression and conflict transformation, analysing how this impacts on nonviolent movements, counter-insurgency, negotiations, and peacebuilding. I primarily specialise on Northern Ireland and South Africa having conducted fieldwork in both these contexts.
