Dr Vincent Keating, BA Economics (Dalhousie), MSc Nationalism Studies (Edinburgh), PhD International Politics (Aberystwyth)
Vincent joined the department in 2012 after completing his PhD in International Politics at Aberystwyth University. His doctoral thesis examined the legitimacy of Bush administration human rights preferences within international society during the war on terror.
Vincent currently works within two research areas. The first examines the tension between the conduct of the United States during the war on terror and the established norms of the international human rights system. The second examines the role of trust in shaping relations between states, particularly when conceptualised as a habitual ideational structure.
