PhD projects

Danielle Beswick’s research is increasingly situated at the interface of security and development, focusing on how fragile and conflict-affected states seek to improve their security through relationships with aid donors. This has led to research on the relationship between international aid and national security policy in Rwanda, and is developing further to explore how the focus on developing an effective African security architecture has impacted on international aid policies. She has focused primarily on the Great Lakes region but is also interested in how these themes play out across the central African region and across sub-Saharan Africa more broadly.

Dr Beswick is also currently developing research on:

The role of small African states in African peace and security initiatives
UK involvement in facilitating these processes and its relationship to wider thinking about the links between security and development
