About Fellow's Work: 

Caitlin Ryan earned her PhD from the University of Limerick (Ireland) and has expertise in gender, security and development. Her recent research (with Helen Basini) has evaluated the implementation of the UN Women, Peace and Security Agenda in Liberia and Sierra Leone. Her current research project examines the conditions that make large-scale land deals possible in Northern Sierra Leone and their effects, by considering the power relations and dynamics at all levels from households to the international system of agribusiness investment.  She is also working on a co-authored project on the relationships between women's security and women's economic empowerment in African post-conflict contexts.
