Dr. Karen Devine

Welcome to the website of Dr. Karen Devine.

Here you'll find out about my work as a lecturer and media contributor, as well as community engagement and research output in the form of conference papers, peer-reviewed journal articles, and NGO presentations and publications.

Recent publications include community engagement presentations on Ireland's active, positive neutrality (Irish Neutrality League, Cork Neutrality League, Galway Anti-War Alliance), a book chapter contribution to Action From Ireland (AfrI)'s book on Irish neutrality, "A Force for Good?" on how Minister for External Affairs Frank Aiken's neutrality-based activism at the United Nations provides a blueprint for resolving the current conflict in Eastern Europe, and an academic peer-reviewed article on Ireland's approach to Nuclear Disarmament in the context of her membership of the European Union and as a member of the United Nations, with a long history of neutrality-based activism in this area.  These publications and presentations might prove interesting reading in the context of the Government's recent"forum" on international security.
