Dr Vincent Keating, BA (Dalhousie), MSc (Edinburgh), PhD (Aberystwyth)
(email at firstname.lastname@example.org)
Vincent joined the department after completing his PhD in International Politics at Aberystwyth University. He also holds a MSc in Nationalism Studies from the University of Edinburgh and a BA in Economics from Dalhousie University. Vincent's doctoral thesis, which will appear as a monograph published by Palgrave MacMillan in 2014, examined whether the Bush administration successfully legitimated its human rights preferences within international society during the war on terror. He has also published in the Review of International Studies, the British Journal of Poltics and International Relations, and the Harvard Cold War Studies Book Series.
Vincent is broadly interested in the intersection between international relations theory and empirical studies. He 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.
