Biography: Jen Peterson joined the HCRI from the University of British Columbia in Canada where she completed a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Department of Political Science. She conducted research on the politics of conflict response and critiques of liberal peacebuilding. With a particular interest in the concept of political space and its impact on aid policy and practice, her research agenda questioned the possibilities for policy innovation and increasing levels of agency within the aid industry. Her doctoral work included research trips to Kosovo in 2005 and 2006 during which she investigated the norms and processes relating to `rule of law' projects and economic reforms which were used to fight criminality and political corruption. Dr Peterson is currently a lecturer in the department of Political Science at the University of British Colombia, Canada.
