Jaremey R McMullin, Senior Lecturer
Dr McMullin has published research on post-conflict transition and ex-combatant reintegration in:
- International Peacekeeping
- Review of International Studies
- Third World Quarterly
- Civil Wars
He is currently researching issues related to comparative veterans’ politics across different geographic regions and time periods and to military veterans’ post-war transition and return in the United States. He has also written reports on ex-combatant reintegration in Liberia and Burundi for the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations.
Dr. McMullin is interested in the nature of internal conflict and the process of post-conflict transition, particularly as they relate to states in sub-Saharan Africa. His primary research interest is the disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration (DDR) of ex-combatants. Additional research interests include:
- the role of the United Nations in post-conflict peacekeeping and peace-building
- veterans and post-war welfare policy
- resistance to peace interventions
- norms of intervention and sovereignty
- regionalism and regional security implications of conflict and post-conflict transition in areas such as West Africa and the Greater Great Lakes
- youth and social movements
- transitional justice.
