Personal profile


Ari is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working on the ARC Discovery Project “The Cartography of Peace: Security Zones, Colour Codes and Everyday Life”.

His research and teaching interests cross the disciplines of International Relations and Political Geography. He has specific expertise on critical approaches to security, heterodox international relations and socio-spatial theory. He is currently co-convener of the Australian Critical Border Studies Network and the Political Geography Study Group of the Institute of Australian Geographers.

Broadly speaking, his research focuses on the politics of insecurity, that is, the contested ways insecurity is understood and notions of political community and subjectivity underpinning security discourse and practice. He is particularly interested in colonial histories of insecurity and the everyday, urban and spatial dimensions of security politics. His most recent work has developed a research agenda on International Urban Politics focused on the intersections between the international, the urban and the political. He is currently completing a book manuscript titled The Politics of Neighbouring: Crisis, Security and Political Subjectivity in Madrid’s Barrios.
