If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Arthur Dudney.

One of the several research projects Tom is currently pursuing is assessing the influence of the UK on the development of state security sectors in the Global South – in particular but not exclusively the Commonwealth – through training, equipment and other forms of assistance since 1945. This is intended to better inform understanding of, on the one hand, the UK’s post-colonial legacies and foreign policy and, on the other, contemporary debates regarding upstream conflict prevention, human rights, and security sector reform why security sectors develop in similar and different ways. This talk will present preliminary findings from one case area of the project: Cold War Southeast Asia, placing it in the context of British overseas security assistance and foreign policy across the Global South in this era.
