Recent Funding Success

John Morrissey has been awarded an Irish Research Council ‘New Foundations’ grant for a project entitled ‘Haven: Intervening for Human Security in the Mediterranean Humanitarian Crisis’. The project is focused on the biggest humanitarian crisis in Europe since the Second World War, the Mediterranean refugee crisis, and has two core aims: (1) to develop a collaborative body of research that addresses the root causes of the crisis and progressively offers an alternative envisioning of Western interventionism via the UN concept of ‘human security’; and (2) to initiate a series of public events where these vital critical perspectives can be constructively and convincingly disseminated to relevant stakeholders and more broadly in the public sphere.
