Samuel Scanlon is a final year PhD candidate with University College Dublin's School of Sociology performing comparative research on conflict tourism practices in Northern Ireland and Palestine/Israel and how this industry furthers peace processes and/or perpetuates conflict through the consumption and presentation of these attractions. His principal research interests lie in the interdisciplinary field of Peace & Conflict studies with specific focus on Conflict Tourism, Transitional Justice, Truth/Narrative, Memory, Identity, Nationalism, Human Rights, and International Law.

He has received the John & Pat Hume scholarship from Maynooth University and his current project is funded under the Ad Astra scholarship in UCD
