Profile

Ola’s current work focuses on post-conflict transitions and mass violence from an interdisciplinary perspective. He has been credited with developing a new criminological theory: the Macro-Micro Integrated Theoretical Model. His research on hierarchy of international crimes and sentencing proportionality has been cited directly in international criminal court judgements e.g. Prosecutor v. Germain Katanga. 2014, http://www.icc-cpi.int/iccdocs/doc/doc1761246.pdf and the Supreme Court Chamber of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, see Kaing Guek Eav Appeal Judgement, 2012. http://www.cambodiatribunal.org/assets/pdf/court-filings/Case%20001%20Appeal%20Judgement%20FINAL%20EN.pdfIn recent years Ola has been interested in improving the plight of the socially disadvantaged particularly ex-Service personnel. He is currently involved in various capacities with Veterans, including: Founder and Project Director Veterans Legal Link http://www.veteranslegallink.org/who-we-are and Elected Board Member of the Ceredigion Armed Forces Community Covenant Strategic Board (CAFCCB). He developed the first live client based multidisciplinary clinical legal education module in the UK with a strong community service focus. His research has been funded by the Ministry of Defence, Heritage Lottery Fund and Big Lottery Fund. He is currently working on a monograph entitled ‘Shifting Paradigms in Collective Violence: From Individualism to Hybridization’ for Routledge (2018).
