Dr Marc Schelhase is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Defence Studies Department, School of Security Studies, King’s College London. He holds a BA and MA in International Relations from Keele University and a PhD in Politics and International Studies from the University of Warwick.

Dr Schelhase’s background is in political economy. He is currently finishing his second book, The Political Economy of Risk in Finance and the Military, for Palgrave Macmillan. The book explores risk through the societal, organisational and personal dimensions to reveal often conflicting and shifting understandings of risk. It demonstrates the challenges, dilemmas and - in many ways- also the impossibilities of risk analysis and risk management.
