Hello! I am a Reader (Associate Professor) in international politics in the
School of Politics and International Relations at Queen Mary, University of
London, and a Research Associate at the Asia Research Centre of
Murdoch University in Perth, Australia.
I specialise in the study of sovereignty, intervention, security, governance
and state transformation in developing countries. I am an expert in the
politics, political economy and international relations of Southeast Asia
(ASEAN) and the Asia-Pacific. I have also worked on Iraq and South Africa.
My research is broadly concerned with the the interaction between
international and domestic politics, with an emphasis on security issues. I
have written about revolution, intervention, state-building, economic
sanctions, non-traditional security, democratisation and regime change,
among other things. My current work is on the rise of China. See my
research and publications links above for full details. Journalists can read
about my media expertise on the media page.
Students and fellow teachers can also access information about my
teaching, while the articles link provides a list of my non-scholarly articles,
essays and reviews. You can also access my blog where I post occasional
updates on my research and media activities, and reflections on political
and economic developments. I also blog at The Disorder of Things and am
a contributing editor at The Current Moment.
You can contact me by emailing l.c.jones[at]qmul.ac.uk. My office hours for
Semester A of 2016-17 are: Mondays, 16:15-17:15 and Thursdays, 13:30-
