Dr Aneta Brockhill

Lecturer in Politics and International Relations

 

Aneta’s research centres on different conceptualisations of violence, and the implications of these for thinking about the phenomenon in contemporary conflicts. The research focuses on the Israel-Palestine conflict and examines the impact of structural and cultural violence on the intractability of the conflict. Her research is partly concerned with further developing and refining the conceptual framework of violence, in the context of security and peace and conflict studies.

Aneta teaches modules on Politics and IR in the Middle East: Violence, Conflict and Religion in the Middle East, Understanding Israel and Palestine: Seeking Peace, and Understanding Israel and Palestine: Seeking Peace. She also teaches Research Methods in International Relations, Key Concepts in Politics and International Relations and co-runs the US Field Trip.
