About me

Iavor Rangelov is Research Fellow at the CCRG, LSE IDEAS and Co-Founder of the Civic Ecosystem Initiative. He coordinated the ERC-funded research programme Security in Transition at LSE, which pioneered the concept of global security cultures, and the Human Security Study Group which reported to former EU High Representative Federica Mogherini. He has published extensively on human rights in counterterrorism and peace operations, human security, justice, and civil society in fragile and conflict-affected environments. He is the author of Nationalism and the Rule of Law (Cambridge University Press) and co-editor of The Handbook of Global Security Policy (Wiley Blackwell) and From Hybrid Peace to Human Security (Routledge). Iavor’s current research investigates the phenomenon of ‘civic ecosystems’, the securitization of climate change, and the military contribution to human security.
