Nationality: British

Research interests: My current research investigates genocide identity formation in the eastern DRC, and how social agents engage in atrocity with their own perceptions of past and ongoing experience. With a background in genocide studies I am interested in genocide theory, prevention, and historic case studies, especially in Africa. My general research interests reflect the intersections of genocide and peace studies: nonviolent responses to atrocity, violence and identity, climate violence, and genocide and British Empire.

‘Speak up Europo’ is a blog about views, prejudices and convictions on themes around Europe expressed by Britons and people living in the UK. Even though my research focus lies on West Africa and Ghana in particular, I have always been interested in the European Union.

As a European I feel to have a legitimate say in issues evolving around Europe and that’s what my blog is all about. If you are interested to know more, follow me on twitter.
