Ann Rogers

Senior Research Affiliate

Dr Ann Rogers is a research adjunct and instructor in the Department of Political Studies at Vancouver Island University. Her research addresses structural violence within the context of the national security state with a view to understanding how state perceptions of threat impact human rights and lives.
Ann’s current project involves investigating Canadian counter-terrorism policies from a critical terrorism studies perspective, using critical and securitization theories and case studies methodologies to map the origins and effects of Canada’s anti-terrorism agenda on its internal security. Her interest in the “new terrorism” was substantively developed during her tenure as deputy editor of Jane’s Intelligence Review from 2001-2005, which became a leading source of open source information during the early years of the Global War on Terror.
Her publications include (with John Hill), Unmanned: Drone warfare & global security (BTL/Pluto 2014); and Secrecy and power in the British state (Pluto 1997).
