CURRENT RESEARCH PROJECTS
WAR AND MACROSOCIOLOGICAL VIOLENCE
I have a longstanding interest in macrosociological violence. This interest culminated in my monograph “Krieg im 20ten und 21ten Jahrhundert – Strategien und Entwicklung“. Currently I am working on two connected projects exploring non-kinetic forms of macrosociological violence. The first investigates Security Force Assistance as a non-kinetic form of remote warfare, with a specific emphasis on such programs being read as ontological security routines. The second analyses the use of military exercises , focusing on training objectives, lessons learned and their wider function within narratives of Great Power competition. I am furthermore one of the lead editors of the Sandhurst Trends in International Conflict (Howgate Publishing), a cutting-edge forum designed to foster dialogue between scholars and practitioners located within the field of Defence and Security Studies.
