Dr Annie Herro is a casual lecturer at the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies. Her research explores issues relating to the United Nations, peacekeeping, the responsibility to protect and the protection of civilians in conflict. She approaches these topics using the theory of norms and is especially interested in ways so-called international norms are localised. Annie is currently finishing a book that explores perspectives on a civil society-led proposal to establish a permanent UN peacekeeping service and considers ways this idea could be localised. She was a visiting scholar at the Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies at Cornell University during semester 2 of 2013.
