Dr. Ross James Gildea is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Oxford Programme on International Peace and Security, which is part of the Institute for Ethics, Law, and Armed Conflict at the University of Oxford. He holds a DPhil in International Relations (completed in 2021) from the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Oxford. His research covers themes such as values and foreign policy, political violence, atrocity prevention and accountability, transnational advocacy, and political psychology.

He is especially interested in explaining why individuals and groups in the non-state sector commit to sustained transnational advocacy in areas of public policy that lack normative consensus.
