Dr Gordon Clubb
Lecturer in International Security
I received my MLitt in Middle East Security Studies at the University of St Andrews (2009) and worked on my doctorate at the University of Leeds (2010-2014). In 2014 I was made Lecturer in International Security and over this time I have taught and researched on the subjects of terrorism, conflict, international relations and security.
I am the chair of the Terrorism and Political Violence Association, which has in the past hosted international events, liaised with government partners, and has run a successful internship programme at POLIS.
My most recent large research project looked at the Disengagement and De-Radicalisation of the Irish Republican Movement.
Other research includes the role of former combatants and framing processes in preventing terrorism and political violence.
I teach on the Terrorism module, Theories of/International Relations, and Security Studies.
Currently I am the Director of the BA International Relations Programme.
I am interested in supervising PhD students in the area of Terrorism, Disengagement and De-Radicalisation, Conflict Prevention and Transformation, and Social Movement Theories.
