Manager

Oliver holds a Master's degree in Securities Studies from University College London. He is committed to discussing important issues in vulnerable and war-impacted areas, highlighting the immediate and long-lasting devastation inflicted on communities. With the role of security and surveillance becoming an increasingly nuanced and all-encompassing issue, he is particularly interested in how complex state and institutional policy goals impact the lives of everyday people, maintaining a close focus on function creep. He is interested in finding functional solutions to humanitarian issues that use region-specific, durable policy tools.
