Shiloh Fetzek is Head of the Climate Change & Security Programme at RUSI. She holds an MA in International Politics and Security Studies from the University of Bradford’s Peace Studies department, and a BA in Justice and Peace Studies from the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota, USA.
Her recent postgraduate work examined the current discourses around climate change as a security issue, looking at the United States military's Africa Command (AFRICOM) as an example of a comprehensive security approach.
Prior to joining RUSI, Shiloh worked at a veterans' advocacy organisation in the United States, and lived in Central and South America. Her research interests include the security implications of climate-related population movements, health effects of depleted uranium munitions, and indigenous self-governance in Latin America.
