Current research: One thread of my research interests is in the area of media reporting of migration and refuge. My post-doctoral work included the book ‘Bad News for Refugees’ (2013) with Prof. Greg Philo and Dr Pauline Donald, published by Pluto Press. Beyond this my research interests relate to propaganda strategies of the US and UK Governments during the ‘war on terror’ and contemporary conflicts. This is the subject of my new book ‘Propaganda and Counter-terrorism: Strategies for Global Change’ (out 2015 from MUP).
