Welcome to my homepage. I am senior lecturer in international
politics in the School of Politics and International Relations at Queen
Mary, University of London. I joined Queen Mary in September 2009
from the University of Oxford, where I was Rose Research Fellow in
International Relations at Lady Margaret Hall.
I specialise in the study of sovereignty, intervention, governance and
state transformation in developing countries. I am an expert in the
politics, political economy and international relations of Southeast Asia
and the Asia-Pacific more broadly. My past research focused on the
Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and (non)intervention
in the region. I have also published studies of international statebuilding
in East Timor and democratisation and foreign policy. My current
research is on international economic sanctions and the governance of
non-traditional security. Full details can be found via the research and
publications links above. Journalists can also find details of my media
expertise on the media page.
Students and fellow teachers can also access information about my
teaching, while the articles link provides a list of my non-scholarly
articles, essays and reviews. You can also access my blog where I post
occasional updates on my research and media activities, and reflections
on political and economic developments.
You can contact me by emailing l.c.jones[at]qmul.ac.uk. My office is
