Broadly conceived my research concerns the political and geographical dynamics of war, militarism and peace, or what I call conflict geographies. Topics of particular interest include ethnic conflict, nationalism, intrastate war, postwar peacebuilding, Southeast European politics, military labor, military contracting and the militarization of U.S. foreign policy.
