Organisational Unit International Relations

In 2008 I received my PhD from the University of Portsmouth at the Centre for European and International Studies Research (CEISR).  I joined the Department of International Relations at Wits one year later where I’m now working as associate professor. My main research interests focus on issues of international organization interplay, peacekeeping in Africa and norm evolution. My most recent monograph is entitled  Cooperative Peacekeeping in Africa: Exploring Regime Complexity which was published at Routledge in June 2015.  In addition to my position at Wits I’m  also a  rostered consultant for the United Nations University’s Centre for Policy Research in Tokyo and hold fellowships at the Canadian Centre for R2P at the University of Toronto, the European Centre for Minority Issues in Flensburg.
