Publications & Research

After getting his PhD in June 2018 and after considerable teaching and marking in 18/19, Dr. Baillie is now concentrating on writing the book and articles arising from his PhD research on the nature of (successful and collaborative) policy-making in the Malayan Emergency, as well as preparing a further research project on wider lessons for (unsuccessful) policy in conflict. Dr Baillie has contributed papers on these topics to a number of academic conferences.

He is frequently interviewed on TV and radio in English, French and Spanish on jihadi attacks in the UK, after a think-tank (CDiSS) paper in late 2004 on the internal threat, seven months before the July 2005 London Tube and bus attacks. Other security matters have included interviews in French on Quebec radio and TV on Operation London Bridge for the Lying-in-State and funeral of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
