Research interests

Main research interests:

  • Civil war and ethnic conflict
  • Secessionism
  • Rebel governance
  • Violence and political contention
  • State (un)making
  • International security
  • Research methods

Ongoing projects

I am currently engaged in three large projects. The first investigates the survival and disappearance of de facto states - polities, like Abkhazia, Northern Cyprus, or Western Sahara, which display many statelike characteristics except for international legal sovereignty. The second analyses the variation in governance/state-building activities conducted by rebel organisations. The third examines the impact of criminal activities undertaken by insurgents on conflict processes.
