Om forfatteren

My research lies at the intersection of Critical Security/War Studies, International Political Sociology, and Postcolonialism, focussing on the multifaceted relationships between violence, subjectivity, and the construction of political authority. I am passionate about bridging research and teaching and I have delivered International Conflict Management courses to civilian and security officials in North Africa, the Middle East, South America, the Balkans, and the Caucasus, where I also conducted field research. Working at the intersection of critical security studies, historical international relations, defence studies, andglobal health, Malte‘s research examines the relationship between violence and modernity.

 

Malte holds a PhD in International Relations from the University of Reading. With expertise in the history of war, mercenaries, remote warfare, Professional Military Education, and the medicalization of violence, Malte′s research has appeared in various peer-review journals including Journal of Global Security Studies, Critical Public Health, Alternatives: Global, Local Political, Globalizations, Defence Studies, Small Wars & Insurgencies and in several scholarly volumes. Malte is also the series editor of Routledge Private Security Studies and Sandhurst Trends in International Conflict.

 

Malte’s PhD research was funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Before coming to Glasgow in 2022, Malte was a senior lecturer at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and holds a Fellowship of the UK Research & Innovation Talent Peer Review College. He has practical experience in supporting military exercises, advising on military doctrine, and contributing to defence engagement activities of the MOD in conflict-affected societies.

«Security is a core matter of international politics. It also is multifaceted. This excellent volume introduces students to a wide range of security problems and the tools to critically analyse them. The chapters are engaging and full of expertise – a fantastic resource!»

«New times produce new problems and new solutions. Here they all are, laid out in a well-tempered array and discussed in a highly accessible fashion. State-centred chapters coexist peacefully with more individually oriented ones, realist slants criss-cross rather more critical ones. A rewarding read.»

Iver B. Neumann

«Security Studies teaches us how to think about security in a different way. It is a comprehensive and incisive, yet welcoming, introduction to conceptualising and analysing the pressing security challenges of the day. Security Studies’ distinct, case-study led approach to pedagogy supports learning by opening up conversations and suggesting transverse, unconventional lines of critical analysis and thinking. The chapters are grounded in practical politics and experiences that make complex concepts come alive to a variety of audiences and scholars. Students will love this.»

Katharine M. Millar

«A vital resource for security studies education, this textbook offers fresh insights into emerging critical topics. It effectively explores security challenges beyond the traditional military-strategic focus, and incorporates excellent contributions from new and established scholars. Educators will value the added features that encourage active learning and discussion.»

Andrew Neal

«This is a fantastic textbook that engages critical issues in the practices and governance of different dimensions of (in)security. The volume brings together effectively the expertise and experiences of top scholars in the field – like learning directly from them. This book is especially suitable for graduate-level teaching and research, and I think will be a welcome contribution to many security studies classrooms, globally.»
