Academic Profile

Allison’s research considers the politics of ethnically divided societies, peace processes and democratization in post-conflict states. Broadly, she is interested in the processes and institutions that facilitate democracy, security and stability in post-conflict settings, with a focus on power-sharing arrangements. Specifically, she is interested in how power-sharing governments handle political crises, the incentive structures for ethnopolitical moderation and extremism that power-sharing offers, and how power-sharing arrangements can be made more inclusive of identities beyond the ethnonational divide. Allison has been co-investigator (with Timofey Agarin) on the ESRC funded project “Exclusion amid Inclusion”, and advised on DFE Funded “Civil Conflict in Post-Conflict Societies” and JRCT funded “Transforming Divided Societies into Welcoming Community”.
