Thesis Outline

The starting point for my thesis is terrorist rehabilitation programmes, which provide counselling to disengaged terrorists as a prelude to their reintegration into society. Addressing this relatively recent development in “soft” approaches to terrorism from an International Relations perspective, the thesis applies English School theory to the Pakistani rehabilitation programme for militants. It employs the English School's historical method and its concepts of international system, international society and world society to broaden the security narrative so that the interplay between history, politics and violence is uncovered.

Supervised By

Dr Simon Mabon


My MA is from the University of Warwick. My Master's dissertation disentangled the different definitions of sovereignty at play in the Kashmir conflict, and asked whether greater international involvement in the dispute was called for.

Career Details

I have worked as an analyst and editor for International SOS-Control Risks, and at the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.
