Adam Branch holds a Ph.D. in political science from Columbia University. His dissertation, "The Political Dilemmas of Global Justice: Anti-Civilian Violence and the Violence of Humanitarianism, the Case of Northern Uganda," comprises a theoretical critique of the discourses and practices of global governance, global justice, and humanitarian intervention. It applies this theoretical critique to the case of northern Uganda, drawing upon fieldwork conducted there since 2001 and demonstrating how humanitarianism can prove counterproductive in practice. He has previously published articles on UN military intervention,the Uganda conflict, and local governance in southern Sudan.
