Biography

I started out as a historian, spending a year in Derry in 1987 doing research for an MA in history on Derry 'before the Troubles' under the supervision of Gearóid Ó Tuathaigh in Galway. The thesis looked at the origins of the civil rights movement and the conflict in the 1950s and 60s.
After spending a year in Berlin I started a PhD in politics at Queen's University Belfast with Paul Bew in 1990, looking at the escalation of conflict in the early 1970s. The thesis was published as the book 'From Civil rights to Armalites'. After a number of years when I was concerned primarily with the online world (establishing the University of Ulster's 'Conflict Data Service' and writing two textbooks on Internet research) I have returned in the past few years to research on conflict.
My principal current interests are in conflict and territoriality, conflict and new technologies and attempts to moderate or resolve conflict. I am a founding convener of the ECPR Standing Group on Political Violence and co-convener of the Political Studies Association of Ireland Specialist Group on Peace and Conflict.  I have organised several conferences, workshops and panels on the theme of peace and conflict in recent years, in Galway, Dublin, London and Rekjavik. Full details of these events are available on my blog at niallodoc.wordpress.ie. At NUI Galway I am cluster leader for the Conflict, Humanitarianism and Security cluster in the Institute for Business, Social Sciences and Public Policy and Director of the Centre for the Study of Nationalism and Organised Violence (CSNOV).

Research Interests

My main research interests are in conflict, negotiation, territory and new technologies and I have published on these topics in a wide range of academic journals. Full information is available at niallodoc.wordpress.com. I have written a study of the escalation of the Northern Troubles in the early years of the conflict called From Civil Rights to Armalites: Derry and the Birth of the Irish Troubles (Cork UP 1997; Palgrave 2004) and two books on internet research. My current research analyses secret communication between the British government and the IRA in the Northern Ireland conflict and I have a publication coming out soon called 'The Longest Negotiation: British Policy, IRA Strategy and the Northern Ireland Peace Settlement', to be published in Political Studies. I am convener of the specialist group on Peace and Conflict of the Political Studies Association of Ireland and a founding convener of the Standing Group on Political Violence of the ECPR (European Consortium for Political Research). We run a blog on the subject at polviolence.net.

I started out as a historian, spending a year living in Derry in 1987 doing a research MA in history on 'Derry before the Troubles' under the supervision of Gearóid Ó Tuathaigh in Galway. The thesis looked at the origins of the civil rights movement and the conflict in the 1950s and 60s.

After spending a year in Berlin in 1989/90 I started a PhD in politics at Queen's University Belfast with Paul Bew in 1990, looking at the escalation of conflict in the North of Ireland in the early 1970s. After a number of years when I was concerned primarily with the online world (establishing the University of Ulster's 'Conflict Data Service' and writing two textbooks on Internet research) I have returned in the past few years to research on conflict.

I have spent time as a visiting scholar at the University of California, Berkeley; the Annenberg School for Communication, USC; Queen’s University Belfast; the University of Auckland and the University of Otago.

SPL 301 Politics of Peace and Conflict

This is a small-group course with twenty students around half of whom are Erasmus students from mainland Europe and visiting students from the US and Canada. Students are introduced in the first few weeks to key theories of peace and conflict and to debates on the causes of violence and war. We move on then to the topic of negotiation and peace processes. Midway through the course students give a group presentation on a contemporary conflict and write a related midterm essay applying some of the theoretical perspectives to the conflict they have chosen to look at. We look then in detail at the case studies of Israel/Palestine and Northern Ireland, comparing the causes of conflict and the peace processes in these two cases. We conclude by looking at key issues in contemporary conflict resolution including international intervention and peacebuilding.

SPL 302 Conflict and Territory

This is also small-group course with twenty students around half of whom are visiting students. This course introduces students to key theoretical perspectives on conflict and on territory and examines recent scholarly efforts to improve our understanding of the relationship between the two. We begin by looking at key texts and key arguments and assessing existing explanations of the apparent intractability of so many territorial disputes. The course then applies these theoretical perspectives to the contemporary experience of conflict in Northern Ireland and Israel/Palestine. We go on to explore the relationship between nationalism and ethnic identity and violent territorial conflict at a variety of scales

SP219 Political Sociology

A second year elective with around 130 students. Political sociology is the study of the relationship between society and politics and the course provides an introduction to both classical and contemporary debates. It reviews the leading theoretical and historical approaches in the field, illustrating theory with concrete empirical work and historical case studies. Among the key issues dealt with are state power, war, political violence, political legitimacy, authority, ideology, citizenship, social movements, nationalism, ethnicity and globalisation.

SP158 Introduction to Politics and Society

This is the core first year introduction to Politics and Sociology with around 800 students. Each lecture has to be delivered twice in order to accommodate the large numbers. I teach the section on 'Power and the State' which introduces students to theories of power and debates on the state and to the formal structures of government in the Republic of Ireland.
