Kimberly Jones, J.D., Ph.D., teaches in the International Affairs and Middle East Studies programs and has a background in legal and political analysis and advocacy. She is particularly interested in policy-relevant research and writing in four areas, which often intersect: (1) connections between political violence and popular grievances; (2) the context of state noncompliance with international law; (3) forced displacement and the construction of narratives of repression and resistance; and, (4) U.S. foreign policy. Dr. Jones investigation of these issues is often situated in or between four localities: the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia and the Caucasus as well as the Middle East. Her recent publications include “From Moscow to Makhachkala: The People in Between,” a chapter for a forthcoming book, published by Fordham’s Urban Law Journal, and a chapter update, coauthored with Dr. Denis Sullivan, about the political situation in Egypt for Routledge’s Europa World Series.
