Peace Studies (BA Hons) 2:1
PGCE (Secondary) QTS
Politics, Security and Integration
I have been writing for ChinaStones for several years and consider myself to be a successful academic researcher and writer that specialises in all areas of the social sciences, as well as some of the more humanistic practice settings, such as social work, education, and teaching. The knowledge and capabilities that I possess in offering my services are built upon several decades of vocational and professional employment that is both wide and varied and include a career in military career within a specialist service, corporate management, and via my years as a teacher and lecturer. Consequentially, my experiential learning has taken place within the military, prison, corporate, and educational settings. This experience, in its totality, allows me to state with a level of credibility that I offer not only the academic response to a posed question, but one that is backed up by real life experience.
Added to this, for my Undergrad I read Peace Studies which culminated in my dissertation being a comparison between the merits of human rights and civil liberties. Subsequently, as a prelude to my teaching and lecturing career, I read Education which resulted in my practice areas of Security Studies, International Relations, Politics, and Criminology. Overall, my research topics are wide and varied and include, in addition to those listed above, conflict and conflict resolution, terrorism, social psychology, communication skills, security, criminology, social policy, education and teacher training.
Essentially, the subject areas that I specialise in are largely focussed within the academic world of social sciences. Added to this, the work related research and investigative skills that I acquired during the earlier part of my career have aided me in being able to offer a service that is both informed and possesses depth. It is for this reason that I am able to confidently undertake assignments that are either offered, or asked, of me.
