Leonie Jackson

Leonie is interested in critical approaches to conflict, terrorism and counterterrorism. Her work on the discursive construction of identities has covered diverse topics, including the representation of women's migration to Islamic State, Islamophobia, the British far-right, American neoconservatives and Enoch Powell's impact on local politics.

She is particularly interested in gendered and racialised constructions in international politics and how these are re-articulated in national and local settings.
