  • Some Recent Media Appearances

    November 30, 2018

    I’ve been very remiss in updating this. In February I appeared on RT to discuss threats to free speech on UK university campuses. In April, I appeared on RT to criticise government proposals for a “Money Supermarket” style comparison website for university degrees. Over the summer I appeared on Renegade Inc. to discuss the causes […]

  • On the Third World Quarterly imbroglio

    December 12, 2017

    I have co-authored a letter, printed in last Saturday’s Times, with a longer version in Times Higher Education, defending the academic journal Third World Quarterly and its editor, Shahid Qadir.

  • Quoted in The Guardian, 24 October 2017

    October 24, 2017

    I am quoted in today’s Guardian, responding to a Eurosceptic Tory MP’s efforts to “gather information” on teaching on the EU in British universities (i.e. to intimidate Remainer academics). Naturally, I tell him to buzz off. UPDATE: the story (and my quotation) is recycled in the Evening Standard, The Times, and RT, and I also […]

  • RT appearance, 19 October 2017

  • The Rohingya Crisis

    October 15, 2017

    Since late August 2017, over 530,000 Rohingya Muslims have been forcibly displaced from Myanmar into Bangladesh. I’ve been quite busy trying to improve public and policymakers’ understanding of the causes of the violence and possibly policies to address it.
