Bryony Vince is an ESRC funded doctoral student in the Department of Politics and International Relations. Her research broadly seeks to dismantle Eurocentric and racist understandings of international relations by uncovering anti-Eurocentric and non-Western approaches to international relations phenomena. Her PhD thesis specifically looks at how government, non-government and community organisations in South Africa utilise the pan-African worldview of Ubuntu to inform peacebuilding initiatives.
Her article, Constructing a Non-Western Theory of IR: A Cosmological Framework, was shortlisted for the 2019 Northedge Essay Prize by Millennium: Journal of International Studies, and her essay How Global is Security Studies? The Possibility of Non-Western Theory was awarded the E-International Relations Essay Award in 2018.
