I am currently working on three book projects, two co-edited volumes and one monograph.
Edited books: I am co-editing the book Rebel group inclusion and the effects on democratisation (with John Ishiyama). In this book, we explore downstream, long-term effects of rebel group inclusion on democratisation. Inclusion of former armed movements into politics is often perceived as a necessary step towards deepening democracy through enhancing the representation of formerly excluded groups. At other times, rebel group inclusion is a necessary step towards stability, but that this peace is not necessarily a “democratic” one. This book provides a first systematic overview and in-depth analysis of the effects of rebel group inclusion on democracy following the end of civil war. The book contains 15 chapters with single and comparative case studies of post-rebel political parties in Latin America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
I am also currently co-editing the Routledge Handbook on political parties, with (Sofia Vasilopolous, Dan Keith and Neil Carter).
Monograph: In From Guerrilla Politics to Party Politics, I analyse how rebel group successor parties govern after war drawing on insights from case studies in Asia and Europe at the intersection of their international and domestic political engagement.
