Personal profile

Research interests

My primary areas of research are Christian political thought and theological ethics. My methodology is inter-disciplinary in approach and draws on theology, political theory and the social sciences. The focus of the research is on a number of issues that affect the contemporary church: notably, church-state relations in a multi-faith society; the intersection of citizenship, democratic politics and inter-faith relations; and the work of faith-based organisations from the local to the international. These foci are reflected in a recently completed three year research project on which I was Principle Investigator entitled: ‘Christianity, urban politics and pursuit of the common good through broad-based coalitions: the case of the Citizens Organizing Foundation’ (Arts & Humanities Research Council Research Grant AH/F010451/1).
