About Bart Klem

My research is focused on question of political order amidst and after civil war. I am interested in state institutions, de facto sovereignty of rebel movements and public authority. Sri Lanka is my main country specialization, and I have an emerging interest in Indonesia (mainly Kalimantan). More details may also be found on my personal website.

Before joining Gothenburg University in 2020, I was lecturer at the University of Melbourne and the University of Zurich.

Key themes include
- Civil war and post-war transition.
- Rebel governance and de facto sovereignty.
- Borders and frontiers.
- Mediation and peace interventions.
- Development processes and international aid.

Ongoing work

I am currently busy finishing a research project on the role of the Sri Lanka's provincial councils in conflict and peace (funded by the Australian Research Council/DECRA) The main output of this project will be a book (manuscript under review; working title: “Sovereignty, nationalism and make-believe: Tamil insurgency and post-war transition in Sri Lanka”).

In addition, I am involved in a collaborative project with the Universities Utrecht, Melbourne and Gothenburg, which is focused on legal identity and rebel governance.

Teaching/supervision

I am involved in several bachelor's and master's courses at the School of Global Studies. In terms of thesis supervision, I am interested in the following themes: conflict analysis, insurgencies, sovereignty, peace building, aid and conflict, nationalism, Sri Lanka.
