Dr Gabriela Thompson
Research Fellow, Defence Industries and Society
Gabriela is a researcher with the Defence, Industries and Societies Programme. To date, her research has centered on the UK defence decision-making community and the culture which informs the defence policy which is put into practice. Today, her research focus has expanded to the analysis of the impact of defence policy and the implications of proposed policies on a variety of communities. These communities include local, military, political and business communities both national and international.
Having graduated with an MA(Hons) in Legal Studies and Politics at the University of Aberdeen and an LLM in Law and Politics of International Security at Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam, she went on to be awarded a PhD on the managerialisation of UK defence policy as part of the RUSI/ University of Roehampton Business School PhD programme.
