Biography

Meera Sabaratnam is Lecturer in International Relations. Prior to this, she was a Temporary Lecturer in Politics and International Studies at the University of Cambridge and LSE Fellow in the Department of International Relations at LSE. She co-edited Volume 37 of Millennium: Journal of International Studies from 2007-8 and served as Reviews Editor for the Journal of Intervention and Statebuilding from 2010-13. She currently co-convenes the Colonial, Postcolonial and Decolonial Working Group of the British International Studies Association (http://cpdbisa.wordpress.com)

Her research focuses on North-South relations, as manifested in both theory and political discourse. She is interested in practices of statebuilding, development and authority-projection across time and space, as well as the forms of political response and organisation to which these give rise. Her geographical focuses are southern Africa and the Indian Ocean. She also blogs on research and other matters at The Disorder of Things (http://www.thedisorderofthings.com).
