Professor Adrian Guelke
My principal interest is in the politics of deeply divided societies, most particularly the cases of South Africa and Northern Ireland. Although I have done some work on each as individual cases, I have an especial interest in comparison of deeply divided societies and any role that comparison has played in their politics. In the past I have done a considerable amount of work on political violence both in deeply divided societies and more widely. This led me to carry out a study of terrorism, a subject that also fits into my interest in the international dimensions of internal conflicts, crossing the boundaries between International Relations and Comparative Politics.
