PhD projects

Nicholas J Wheeler is Professor of International Relations and Director of the Institute for Conflict, Cooperation, and Security at the University of Birmingham. He is currently writing a book provisionally entitledTrusting Enemies. This is a key output of a 3-year ESRC/AHRC Fellowship on ‘The Challenges to Trust-Building in Nuclear Worlds’ (awarded under RCUK’s ‘Global Uncertainties: Security For All in a Changing World’ programme). He is co-editor with Professor Christian Reus-Smit of the prestigious Cambridge Series in International Relations.

Professor Wheeler is also a theme leader for 'Saving Humans’ - an innovative and timely theme which consolidates existing University research agendas, provides opportunities for creating novel and exciting partnerships, transcends divides between arts, social sciences and natural sciences and, most importantly, addresses broader issues of social, political and moral concern for humanity’s future.
