Patrick Pinkerton

Patrick is an Assoicate Lecturer at University College London, and an Honorary Research Fellow at Queen Mary University of London. One strand of his research utilises the philosophy of Jacques Derrida to analyse the post-conflict situations in Northern Ireland and Bosnia-Herzegovina, in order to put forward a deconstructive approach to peacebuilding. The second strand employs a biopolitical lens, developed from readings of Foucault and Agamben, to analyse migration and refugee governance. Follow him on Twitter.
