Miriam Bradley

Professora ajudant


Miriam is an Assistant Professor in International Security. Prior to joining IBEI in 2014, she held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, and teaching positions at University College London, the University of Oxford, and Oxford Brookes University. She also previously worked in the Humanitarian Research Group at INSEAD, and in the Humanitarian Policy Group at the Overseas Development Institute.

Working at the intersection of international relations (IR) and humanitarian studies, Miriam is interested in how theoretical approaches from IR can enhance understanding of humanitarian policy and practice, and how such policy and practice can in turn shed light on theoretical questions from IR. Empirically, she focuses on contexts of armed conflict and violence, and has conducted research in Colombia, the DRC and Myanmar. Her first book, Protecting Civilians in War, was published by Oxford University Press in 2016. She is writing a second book, The Politics & Everyday Practice of International Humanitarianism, also under contract with OUP.
