Personal profile

Research interests

I am Professor of International Security and Director of the Global Insecurities Centre in SPAIS. Between 2015-19, I was founding Editor-in-Chief of the European Journal of International Security  for Cambridge University Press and the British International Studies Association (BISA). I am also Co-Director of the SafeSeas Network. My work addresses issues of security sector reform, civil-military relations and capacity building, with a recent focus on the maritime environment. My current research focuses on responses to transnational organised crime at sea. I have published on these themes in journals including the Review of International StudiesArea, Marine Policy Cooperation and Conflict, International Affairs, Survival, Armed Forces and Society, Europe-Asia Studies, and the Journal of Democracy, and authored or edited ten books. These include Capacity Building for Maritime Security: The Western Indian Ocean Experience (2020), British Foreign Policy and the National Interest (2014), Out of Step: The Case for Change in the British Armed Forces (2007), and Security Sector Reform in Transforming Societies (2007).
