DR WILL JONES

Will Jones is a lecturer in International Relations at Royal Holloway.

Most of Will's work relates to the contemporary politics of Central Africa, particularly Rwanda, how diasporas mobilise against authoritarian regimes, and authoritarianism and state-building more broadly.

 

He has just finished a three-year project entitled The Nation Outside The State: Transnational Exile In The African State System, generously funded by the Leverhulme Trust.

 

This project culminated in a book, co-authored with Alexander Betts, entitled Mobilising The Diaspora: How Refugees Challenge Authoritarianism, published by Cambridge University Press.

 

During that period, he was Junior Research Fellow in the Social Sciences at Balliol College.

 

He is also the co-founder of an organisation, Refugees' Say, dedicated to reforming refugee resettlement to empower both refugees and the communities that host them.
