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. Past, present and future endeavors emphasize three areas that frequently intersect: (1) self-determination and secession; (2) human rights violations manifest as grievances; and (3) conflict transformation. Her current research is geographically focused on Europe (specifically the United Kingdom and Ireland) and the United States, however, prior investigation of these issues includes Russia and the Middle East. Her recent publications include “From Moscow to Makhachkala: The People in Between,” a chapter for a 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.
