He is editing, with Dong Jin Kim, a volume with brings together experts from Europe and East Asia to examine peacemaking in Ireland and Korea, due to be published by Routledge in 2021. He is regularly consulted by the international media on developments in Northern Ireland and speaks frequently to international groups of policy makers and civil society organisations on peacemaking in Ireland. He has written or co-written op-eds in the Irish Times, The Times (Ireland) and the Huffington Post. David is co-supervising PhD research on the socio-economic dimension of the peace processes in Ireland and Korea (Eugene Lee), peacebuilding in Sudan (Megan Greeley), and young people and consociationalism in Northern Ireland (Sarah Wallace). He teaches on the modules Conflict and Peace in Northern Ireland, Research Skills, Foundations of Conflict Resolution Research and Contemporary Conflict and Peacemaking: Global Perspectives.
