Tobias Kelly (University of Edinburgh) on Conscience, Cowardice and Citizenship Among British Pacifists"
Tobias Kelly’s research interests include human rights, legal anthropology, law and development, and the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. He has recently completed a long term ESRC funded project that explores the role of law and medicine in the recognition of torture. The research draws on fieldwork in the UK, Israel/Palestine, and at the UN, to produce a multi-sited study of the implications of international human rights claims for understandings of cruelty and suffering. He has also carried out long term fieldwork amongst West Bank Palestinians, concentrating on issues of citizenship and everyday experiences of violence. He received a PhD in Anthropology from the London School of Economics in 2003, and has worked at the Institute of Law of Birzeit University, the Crisis States Programme at the LSE, and the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies at Oxford University.
