Annamaria Kiss, MA
Visiting Fellow

Annamaria Kiss is a Visiting Fellow at oiip and a doctoral student at King’s Russia Institute, King’s College London. Annamaria’s doctoral research project is funded by a studentship from the Economic and Social Research Council (ECRC). Her project seeks to understand the Russian perceptions of voluntary transnational armed mobilisation, particularly the Russian so called ‘foreign fighters’ who left to fight in Syria and Iraq. She applies a Social Movement Theory framework to understand mobilisation behind high-risk transnational activism and the state’s approaches and policies.

Annamaria is also the co-founder and co-convener of the British International Studies Association Working Group on political violence, conflict and transnational activism.

Prior to coming to King’s Annamaria worked for five years as a Research Fellow at the Center for European Neighborhood Studies (CENS) at Central European University.
