Amanda Hall

Amanda Hall is a PhD Candidate in the School of International Relations at the University of St Andrews, affiliated with the Handa Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence. Her dissertation looks at ‘inter-referendum’ Northern Ireland – from the 1998 Good Friday Agreement to the 2016 Brexit vote – and the role of the voluntary and community sector in confronting the still on-going peace process, including how these organisations have dealt with top-down political tumult and risks to ‘peace’ from a bottom-up perspective.
