Mr Boris Kilgarriff

Analyst. Working with the British-Yemeni Society and the Sana'a Center for Strategic Studies.


Biography:

I recently completed my MA in History and Arabic at SOAS, focussing on imperial policy in Palestine and South Yemen in the 20th Century. I wrote my dissertation about the relationship between Aden and the Bombay Presidency in the inter-war years and how this led to the establishment of a patchwork surveillance state in Aden, which informed identity formation as it placed new limitations on mobility. Since completing my MA I have been researching the role of UN institutions on the present-day conflict in Yemen with the British-Yemeni Society and the Sana'a Center for Strategic Studies.

Research Interests

British imperial role in controlling migration between the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea in the early 20th Century.
