"Lending a helping hand? How different state actors impact civil war."
Leila’s research examines the role of third party interventions in civil wars; specifically the impact of state/non-state actors. Leila’s focus is investigating how these different actors, both on a military and political level, can affect the dynamics of civil war and result in differing outcomes.
Leila’s wider research interests encompass studies of civil war, commercial military actors and mediation.
