Award Date
My doctoral research was supported by grants awarded by the following: Dept of Education for Northern Ireland (Research Studentship), Thomas Witherton-Batt Trust Fund (University College London) and the Radicliffe-Brown Memorial Fund for Social Anthropological Research
I am currently working in two areas. Firstly, the anthropology of peace and pacification; ie the use of what is taken to be anthropological knowledge about culture, identity and ethnicity in 'liberal' and 'humanitarian' intervention. Secondly, ongoing debates about ethnic statistics, ethnic categorisation and anti-discrimination initiatives in Europe.
