Introduction:

I defended my PhD thesis “Defining, Securing and Building a Just Peace: The EU and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict" in May 2013. A revised version of the thesis will be published by Lexington Books (subsidiary of Rowman & Littlefield) in the United States during 2014. 

Jag försvarade min avhandling “Defining, Securing and Building a Just Peace: The EU and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict" i maj 2013. En omarbetad version av avhandlingen kommer att ges ut av Lexington Books (del av Rowman & Littlefield) i USA under 2014.

My work has appeared in Journal of Conflict Transformation and Security, New Middle Eastern Studies, European Voice, Maan, EUobserver, Huffington Post, The Jerusalem Post, Iranian Review, Eurasia Review and SvD Brännpunkt. In addition, I have provided commentary for several media outlets, including SR Ekot, SR Studio ett, SR P1-morgon, TT, DN, SvD, SdS, AB och Expressen.
