Biography

Suthaharan Nadarajah is a Lecturer in International Relations. His research interests are in International Relations theory, international security, and North-South relations, with a focus on contestations inhering in international interventions to secure peace, stability and global order. His current work focusses on international responses to mass atrocities in contexts of counter-insurgency and protracted ethno-political conflict, with empirical reference to Sri Lanka. He has written on liberal order, peacebuilding and securitised development, transnationalised armed conflict, and diasporas in the ‘War on Terror’. He has conducted donor-funded policy research on armed conflict, war-to-peace transitions, terrorism proscriptions, diasporas in peace and conflict dynamics, and donor-recipient dialogue for the Asia Foundation, Berghof Foundation, UK government, and the European Commission.

 

Previously, Sutha was a Lecturer in International Security at the University of Sussex. He holds an MA in International Studies & Diplomacy and a PhD in International Studies from SOAS University of London. Before entering academia, Sutha worked in the corporate sector for ten years at Hewlett Packard, Accenture and Goldman Sachs.
