Lisa Denney is a Research Officer in the Politics and Governance Programme at the Overseas Development Institute (ODI). She has a PhD in International Politics, completed at Aberystwyth University. Her interests focus on the relationship between security and development, post-conflict peacebuilding and informal governance practices, and she has work experience on issues of disarmament, citizen security and youth education/reintegration in West Africa and East Timor. Her research has focused on the inability of donors to engage with non-state governance actors in their efforts to transform the political landscape of fragile states, and therefore the need to better account for local governance practices.
