Dr Colin Fleming

Personal profile

Colin Fleming holds M.Litt in War Studies (Distinction), MA (Hons) History and International Relations at the University of Aberdeen. Colin's principal research interests lie in the field of international relations, particularly the role and impact of war in the modern world. His thesis investigated the modern utility of the Clausewitzian 'Trinity' in the analysis of the nature and conduct of war. Using the Balkan wars of 1991-1994 as a case study, he assessed the contemporary relevance of Clausewitzian ideas against the challenges of the increasingly popular 'new war' thesis. His publications include "'New or Old Wars": Debating a Clausewitzian Future' in Journal of Strategic Studies, Volume 32, Number 2, April 2009 , pp. 213-241. Colin was awarded a one-year Postdoctoral Fellowship on the Max Weber Programme at the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence for the 2009/10 academic year, and has since gone on to a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship at the University of Edinburgh.
