Overview

Dr Morgan Brigg blends theory and practice in examining the interplay of culture, governance and selfhood in conflict resolution, peacebuilding and development studies. He is an experienced mediator (nationally accredited) and facilitator, with conflict resolution training experience in Aboriginal Australia, Solomon Islands and Indonesia. His research aims to develop ways of knowing across cultural difference which work with local and Indigenous approaches to political community. Current projects examine intercultural forms of governance in Indigenous health and the promise of ideas of relationality for making the field of conflict resolution a genuinely global endeavour.

His research interests include:

  • Conflict Resolution 
    The politics, ethics and efficacy of conflict resolution, conflict management, peacemaking and peacebuilding.
  • Indigenous Politics 
    Settler-Indigenous and global Indigenous politics, including different conceptions of political order and contemporary governance practices.
  • Politics of Cultural Difference, Decoloniality, Postcolonialism 
    How cultural difference frames conceptions of political order, decolonising knowledge production.
  • Selfhood and Subjectivity 
    The variable production of selves through relations of power and culture, and the self as a vehicle for knowing and translating across cultural difference.
