I'm Guy Aitchison, a political theorist and Irish Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow at the School of Politics and International Relations, University College Dublin (UCD). I work on human rights, democracy and political resistance. I am particularly interested in the terrain of political conflict and the issues of legitimacy which arise when people mobilise outside official channels.

This site gives an overview of my current and past research and collects my published writings. You can download a copy of my CV and see a summary of my teaching. I share papers on Academia.edu and can also be found on Google Scholar.
