Dr Andreas Papamichail holds a joint position as a Teaching Fellow in Global Health at the King’s Centre for Global Health & Health Partnerships, and as a Research Associate in the Department of War Studies on the R4HC-MENA project. He obtained his PhD from the School of International Relations at the University of St Andrews, for a thesis entitled “Structural Violence and the Paradox of Humanitarian Intervention”. The thesis examines the ethical implications of humanitarian intervention from a critical and dialogic cosmopolitan perspective. Before his PhD, he completed a BA in International Relations, and an MA in Global Politics and Law, both at the University of Sheffield. Since 2012, Andreas has worked as a consultant for the Regional Network on Equity in Health in Southern Africa and the Training and Research Support Centre, on several projects focusing on health in eastern and southern Africa, including on: the use of performance-based financing for healthcare; the role of BRICS countries in south-south cooperation for healthcare; and the impact of the extractive industries on health. Outside of this regional focus, he has also contributed to work on learning from primary healthcare practices in high- and middle-income countries, and on African responses to the Ebola outbreak in 2014.
Andreas’ research interests lie at the interface of International Relations and Global Health, with a focus on the health impacts of conflict, global health security, and global and regional health governance (especially in east and southern Africa). He also examines issues around conflict, atrocity crimes, humanitarian intervention and structural violence from an international political theory perspective.
At the King’s Centre for Global Health & Health Partnerships, Andreas co-leads on the International Development & Health and Conflict & Health modules, and leads on the iBSc dissertation module.
