Research interests

Trained in comparative and international education, my research explores the relationship between education, conflict and peace. I am particularly interested in history curriculum, transitional justice processes (especially truth commissions) and understanding how education might contribute towards complex social processes like reconciliation and peacebuilding. I have used qualitative methods to explore these issues in Latin America and West Africa and have also undertaken global level studies using a range of methods.

I am the editor of the books Education and Reconciliation (Bloomsbury, 2011) and Education, Conflict and Development (Symposium, 2011) as well author of journal articles and book chapters on the themes described above. I am a member of the Editorial Boards of Comparative Education and Research in International and Comparative Education. I have done research consultancy work for ICTJ, INEE, UNICEF, UNESCO, UNEVOC and the World Bank.
