Research Interests

Martin holds a Ph.D. in Irish/European Economic Community relations during the 1970s. Through his work on this topic he has developed an interest in the role small states play in the international system and the effect of both small states on European integration and the integration process on small states.

After finishing his Ph.D. Martin worked in a number of roles in the Irish Maritime and Energy Resource Cluster and the Science Foundation Ireland Marine and Renewable Energy Ireland Centre of Excellence. During this time, he became interested in the effect that climate change is having on human security and the different responses to this from a variety of actors including militaries and the development and humanitarian aid communities. He successfully applied for a Marie Curie CAROLINE Fellowship on this subject and is currently based in Berlin on secondment with an environmental think tank Adelphi.
