Research title: Political Stability in the Aftermath of Rebel Victories

Research Summary

I am an ESRC-funded PhD student researching variation in the degree of political stability experienced by countries in the aftermath of rebel victories. I employ a mixed-methods approach to investigate the influence of processes and relationships that developed or occurred during conflict on political developments in the post-war environment.

Additional Information

Prior to starting work on my PhD in 2018, I worked for five years as a monitoring and evaluation consultant with a UK-based company. This involved working on several projects for a diverse range of organisations, including United Nations agencies, the UK Department for International Development, multilateral finance institutions, and international non-government organisations.

I completed my Masters in International Security at the Instit Barcelona D’Estudis Internacionals (IBEI - Spain) in 2013, and my BA in International Relations at Nkumba University (Entebbe – Uganda) in 2011.
