Biography

Adam Baird holds a PhD from the Peace Studies Department at the University of Bradford. He is a trained ethnographer with a focus on crime, gang violence, Citizen Security and urban insecurity in Latin America and Caribbean. He has used masculinities as a lens to understand gang membership in Medellín, Colombia, and has also worked across Central America and the Caribbean. His research has been funded by ESRC, OSF, IDRC and SSRC. Adam is an ‘Associated Expert’ to the UNDP Crisis Response Unit for armed violence reduction and Citizen Security, and has worked with the ICRC, Norwegian Red Cross, as well as NGOs and community based organisations. His research has been used to design gang violence intervention projects in Belize.

Area of Expertise:

Gangs, masculinities, Colombian conflict

Research Interests

Gangs; Belize; Trinidad and Tobgo; Colombia; Masculinities; SGBV; Armed violence; Latin America and Caribbean

Vision Statement

The aim of my research is to contribute to our understanding of violence and how it affects vulnerable populations in the urban margins. Research into masculinities and gang violence is scarce, so I hope that my work can have a ‘masculinities impact’ in the academy, but also in terms of policies and intervention, to improve our violence reduction practices.
