Politics, Philosophy & Religion

Politics, Philosophy & Religion

Our interdisciplinary research brings together scholars who work across the disciplines of Religious Studies, Philosophy, and Politics and International Relations with an aim to improve policies for promoting peace and security. Our researches support peace and security related issues by government officials – these have included the Office for Security and Counter-Terrorism, the MOD Strategic Trends Unit, Public Safety Canada, and the House of Lords.

I lead a programme of research in the Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (CREST) focused on the transmission of ideas, beliefs and values in social context. My research interests include the theorization of space and place; the interrogation of religious and political spaces; spatial metaphors in religious and political discourse; the relationship between religion and non-religion; the 'secular sacred'; media representations of religion; and religion and its intersections with migration, diasporas, diversity and ethnicity.
