who we are
We are a network of interdisciplinary researchers with expertise in crisis prevention, management and resolution, in response to evolving, real or perceived, global and local challenges.
The hub of our international research network is Glasgow, Scotland. CrisisPolitics has been developed with support from the School of Social and Political Sciences (SPS) at the University of Glasgow, for a project entitled “Tilting at Windmills? The Construction and Deconstruction of Security Threats”.
Our diverse research and knowledge transfer activities have also been generously supported by the Economic and Social Research Council, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the British Academy, the Carnegie Trust, the University of the West of Scotland, Strathclyde University, Newcastle University and the UK’s Political Studies Association.
We have also partnered with or offered consultancy services to a range of leading civil society organisations, including the European Union Agency for Asylum (EUAA), the Scottish Refugee Council, SolidarityNow, the Greek Politics Specialist Group (GPSG), the diaNEOsis think-tank, and the Center for Educational Consultation & Research (Educart, Lebanon).
The CrisisPolitics team is headed by Georgios Karyotis, Professor of Security Politics at the University of Glasgow. Here are some of the other key members of our dynamic network.
