HCRI welcomes Professor Oliver Richmond
Oliver’s primary area of expertise is in peace and conflict theory, and in particular its interlinkages with IR theory. Recently, he has become interested in local forms of critical agency and resistance, and their role in constructing hybrid or post-liberal forms of peace and states (see A Post-Liberal Peace, 2011). He is editor (with Roger Mac Ginty) of the new Taylor and Francis journal Peacebuilding.
Oliver is currently co-directing and involved in several major research projects, funded by a range of research councils and donors. He has received several major grants, including from the Leverhulme Trust, two EUFP7 grants, an EU Marie Curie for post-doctoral support, two grants from the British Academy, as well as UNU, the Carnegie and Nuffield Trusts (for fieldwork and for further post-doctoral support).
