Colin Fleming is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, and is currently working on a project examining perceptions of victory and defeat in asymmetric warfare. Colin completed his PhD in International Relations from Royal Holloway, University of London in 2009, and held a Max Weber Fellowship at the European University Institute in Florence 2009-2010.

Colin’s research interests are in strategic and security studies, with a particular interest in the changing character of war debate, classical strategic thought, perceptions of victory and defeat, and asymmetric war.
