Kristian   Brown

Kris Brown joined the Transitional Justice Institute as a postdoctoral research fellow in October 2008 and was appointed Lecturer in the School of Criminology, Politics and Social Policy in 2010. He is a native of Belfast, and graduated from Queen's University Belfast (QUB) with a BA in 1992, and took his PhD in Irish politics from the same university in 2000. From 2001-2005 he worked in the Northern Ireland Political Collection of the Linen Hall Library. In 2006-2007 he was a research fellow in the Institute of Irish Studies at QUB preparing a study of material culture relating to the conflict in and about Northern Ireland.  In 2008 he was research fellow in Queen's University's Special Collections, working with the Forrest Reid and Stephen Gilbert archive.  Kris's research interests focus on commemoration, memory and memorialisation in post conflict Northern Ireland, especially themes relating to victimhood, the nature of the conflict, relations with the state, the use of political symbols, and national identities.  Internationally comparative approaches deepen aspects of this work.  Other research interests include political developments within Ulster Loyalism and modern Irish Republicanism, and arms decommissioning. He has also written on Irish foreign policy.
