Louise Amoore

Department of Geography, Durham University, United Kingdom

Louise Amoore’s research focuses on three key areas: global geopolitics and the governance of worker and migrant bodies; the politics and practices of risk management (with specific reference to the rise of risk consulting as a technology of governing); and political and social theories of resistance and dissent. Her current research project addresses the practices of consulting and risk management in relation to the ‘war on terror’, with a close focus on the proliferation of new border management techniques. Before arriving in Durham in 2005 Louise was a lecturer in International Politics at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. She is co-editor of the Routledge/RIPE series in Global Political Economy.
