Paul HumphreysI hold a BA (Hons) in International Studies with the OU and an MA (Merit) in International Relations (IR) with Anglia Ruskin University. I am currently a doctoral research student with Brunel University researching the effects of the H.M. Governments PREVENT counter-terrorism strategy on professionals working in public welfare services. I have studied geopolitical events for many years and have always found it a fascinating subject. In terms of IR I am a adherent of the realist school of thought. I think a good understanding of IR has never been so important, because the current global order is in a state of flux and the West is facing the distinct possibility of decline and being eclipsed by a rising East Asia led by China.
