Marco Vieira (email@example.com): As part of his PhD, Dr. Vieira has researched and written widely on global governance mechanisms to address the most important public health crisis of our time, namely the HIV/AIDS global pandemic. The study innovatively develops theoretical and conceptual insights on the problem of achieving ‘security’ in international relations. It also provides a detailed empirical analysis of HIV / AIDS policy responses in Botswana, Mozambique and South Africa. He has a solid understanding of security debates in International Relations (IR), especially in relation to the challenges posed by non-traditional threats (disease, climate change, famine, etc.) to international peace and stability. His PhD thesis covers a wide-range of IR theories (mostly the securitisation literature and the constructivist debates on the emergence and diffusion or international norms) and applies them to the understanding of how and why the HIV / AIDS epidemic was defined by the international community as a threat to global security. Dr. Vieira is the author of various articles and conference papers. He is also the co-author of the book ‘The South in World Politics’ (with Chris Alden and Sally Morphet). He is currently working on a new research project about the North / South divide and the global governance of climate change.
