We are delighted to report that Dr Merav Amir’s recent application for a significant ESRC grant has just been approved. This research project is dedicated to the examination of the social and political implications of the broad use of torture by democratic states in postcolonial and neo-colonial settings.
Merav is a cultural and political geographer with particular interest in critical perspectives on security, processes of border making, geographies of embodiment, critical cultural analysis and feminist and queer theory. Previous research includes the use of border making technologies in the Israeli control over the occupied Palestinian territory, and political activism and the securitization of public spaces.
