John’s current research focusses on the role of social movement activism in divided societies, particularly in Lebanon and Northern Ireland. In this, he examines how a range of non-sectarian social movements – including LGBTQ, feminist and class based groups - mobilize for inclusion or challenge power sharing structures in divided societies. A related research theme includes the consequences of civil war and peace processes on LGBTQ populations, such Colombia, Northern Ireland, Syria and Lebanon.
