Outi’s research interests are in conflict and peace in international relations. Her primary research focuses on statebuilding in post-conflict and fragile regions. She is currently working on identity-related aspects of statebuilding and on the aftermath of the international intervention in Libya. Outi’s second strand of research looks at peace beyond war-torn and fragile regions: she is a co-investigator in an inter-disciplinary LSE-based project investigating media representations of the Euro zone crisis across EU member states. The research focuses on the diverging public perceptions of the crisis and ideas of Europe as well as on the role of media in the crisis. She is co-editor and contributor to the Euro Crisis in the Press – blog.
