Dr. Adam Sandor holds a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Ottawa. His research examines the governance of non-traditional security threats such as terrorism, drug trafficking, money-laundering, and violent extremism in Africa. More recently, his research has explored the politics of rebel governance in the Sahel. He has published in several leading academic journals such as International Affairs, Security Dialogue, Journal of Global Security Studies, Civil Wars, and the Journal of Intervention and Statebuilding. For the past three years, Dr. Sandor worked as Adam Smith International's Research Lead supporting the United Kingdom's Conflict, Security, and Stability Fund stabilisation activities in central and northeast Mali. He has provided expert testimony to the Government of Canada’s Department of Public Safety, the Department of Security of the Royal Kingdom of the Netherlands, the United Kingdom’s Border Force, and the Sector East Command of the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilisation Mission in Mali (MINUSMA). Adam's research currently examines the politics of South-South cooperation in transnational security initiatives and stabilisation interventions on the continent that attempt to counter the rise of armed Islamist insurgencies.
