Dr. Suthaharan Nadarajah’s research focuses on International Security, International Relations, and global governance. He teaches courses on International Relations, Global Public Policy and Project Management. His research examines how the international community secures itself against emergent threats to international order through global frameworks which combine themes of security, development and liberal governance. He is also studying the role of financial regulation in international stability. His doctoral thesis (completed at SOAS’s Department of Politics and International Studies) used Sri Lanka’s armed conflict and Norwegian-led peace process as case study. He has conducted donor-funded policy research on Sri Lanka’s conflict, terrorism proscriptions, armed groups and war-to-peace transition, diaspora mobilisation, and donor-recipient dialogue for the Asia Foundation, Berghof Foundation and European Commission. Before joining CISD, he lectured in International Security at the University of Sussex. Before undertaking his MA and doctoral research at SOAS, he worked in the corporate sector for ten years at Hewlett Packard, Accenture and Goldman Sachs.
