Dr Jeremy Wildeman is a scholar and lecturer of International Relations (+Theory), Middle East Politics, Critical Development Studies, Human Security, Critical Security Studies and Canadian Foreign Policy.
Currently he is helping build academic and policy networks on Canada’s relationship with the Middle East (uOttawa). A great deal of his research focuses on Western perceptions and policy toward the region. His past work includes extensive analysis of the role played by the donors in Palestinian state building in the occupied Palestinian territory (OPT), in support of the Middle East Peace Process. This includes major studies like an ESRC funded project exploring the perceptions and approaches of major Western donors in the OPT (uBath), and of Canada’s relationship with the Palestinians (uExeter). He had also organised human rights projects (uOttawa) and taught on complex critical security issues (Carleton-NPSIA).
As a practitioner, he has spent many years supporting community development organisations working in regions of conflict and crisis.
