Northern Cyprus

Dr Adrian Florea (PhD Indiana University) is a Lecturer in the School of Social and Political Sciences and Convener of the Global Security Program at the University of Glasgow. He is currently engaged in three large research projects. The first investigates the survival and disappearance of post-WWII de facto states (breakaway entities, like Abkhazia, Nagorno-Karabakh, Northern Cyprus, South Ossetia, Somaliland, Transnistria, or Western Sahara). The second analyses the variation in governance activities conducted by insurgent organisations. The third examines the link between 'dark' networks and civil war processes.
