DR WILL JONES

Senior Lecturer in International Relations at Royal Holloway and Co-Director of GloPolDev

will.jones@rhul.ac.uk

Most of Will's work relates to the contemporary politics of Central Africa, particularly Rwanda, how diasporas mobilise against authoritarian regimes, and authoritarianism and state-building more broadly.

 

He has just finished a three-year project entitled The Nation Outside The State: Transnational Exile In The African State System, generously funded by the Leverhulme Trust.

 

This project culminated in a book, co-authored with Alexander Betts, entitled Mobilising The Diaspora: How Refugees Challenge Authoritarianism, published by Cambridge University Press.

 

During that period, he was Junior Research Fellow in the Social Sciences at Balliol College.

 

He is also the co-founder of an organisation, Refugees' Say, dedicated to reforming refugee resettlement to empower both refugees and the communities that host them.
