Email: cdavey1@bradford.ac.uk

Nationality: British

Research interests: My current research investigates genocide identity formation in the eastern DRC, and how social agents engage in atrocity with their own perceptions of past and ongoing experience. With a background in genocide studies I am interested in genocide theory, prevention, and historic case studies, especially in Africa. My general research interests reflect the intersections of genocide and peace studies: nonviolent responses to atrocity, violence and identity, climate violence, and genocide and British Empire.
