PhD Candidate Josie Hornung named one of the '2020 Young Women to Watch in International Affairs'

10 Mar 2020

Congratulations to Josie Hornung, a PhD candidate in International Relations at the University of Queensland, Australia. She was awarded the 2019 AEUIFAI Postgraduate Research Fellowship to study at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy where she is currently based. She recently completed a visiting PhD student fellowship at the University of Oxford and a research internship at the Australian Civil Military Centre, which is part of the Department of Defence Australia.

She is broadly interested in mass atrocity prevention, and her research looks at the decision-making process that has historically led to action or inaction in the face of imminent mass atrocities (such as genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing). Her research project is supervised by Professor Chris-Reus-Smit and Professor Alex Bellamy. Josie has had work published with the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, and is currently working as a Research Assistant for Dr Emma Hutchinson. She hopes to continue her research into mass atrocity prevention, and human security generally, through a career in academia.
