 David Roberts

Dr David Roberts

Dr. David Roberts is Senior Lecturer in International Relations at Loughborough University. He works on peacebuilding in postcolonial spaces, especially the troubled relationship the West has with the idea that sometimes democratization isn’t necessarily what people emerging from war value most. He is concerned with developing field research practices and tools that hear and project the voices of the people in whose name we claim to build peace. He is the designer of the Hearing Voices Project website. David has worked extensively in Viet Nam, Cambodia and Sierra Leone, and will be conducting a major field research exercise in Somaliland, South Sudan, Nepal and Liberia between 2016 and 2018.
