Vincent Charles Keating is an Associate Professor in International Relations at the Center for War Studies, University of Southern Denmark.
Vincent holds a PhD in International Politics (Aberystwyth), an MA in Nationalism Studies (Edinburgh), and a BA in Economics (Dalhousie), and previously worked at the School of Government & International Affairs, University of Durham.
Vincent currently works within four research areas:
1) Examining the tension between the conduct of the United States during the war on terror - particularly with respect to torture, habeas corpus, and rendition - and the established norms within the international human rights system.
2) Examining the role of trust and distrust in shaping relations between states.
3) Examining the problems of trustworthiness and legitimacy facing non-governmental organizations (NGOs) at the domestic and international level.
4) Examining the phenomenon of conservative soft power, with a particular focus on Russia.
Vincent has published a book entitled US Human Rights Conduct and International Legitimacy: The Constrained Hegemony of George W. Bush, which examined whether the Bush administration successfully legitimated its human rights preferences within international society during the war on terror.
Vincent has also published pieces in the Review of International Studies, the British Journal of Politics and International Relations, the Journal of International Relations and Development, International Politics, and the Harvard Cold War Studies Book Series.
