With Professor David Smith, I have convened KINPOL: Observatory on Kin-state Policies since September 2017. In October 2018, I joined the Centre for Russian, Central and East European Studies as a Research Associate/ Co-investigator (with Professor David Smith) on the project ‘Poland’s Kin-state Policies: Opportunities and Challenges’, funded by the Noble Foundation Programme on Modern Poland (2018-2020). My research reflects a combined interest in international politics and applied political theory and has focused on the kin-state – kin minorities relations, state responsibility and multiculturalism.
