He is the co-author of Aid and Power in the Middle East and North Africa, and Economic Liberalisation, Social Capital and Social Welfare in the Arab World (both published in 2009 by Palgrave McMillan with Professor Jane Harrigan). His latest work includes a book entitled Globalisation, Democratisation and Radicalisation in the Arab World (with Jane Harrigan, Macmillan Palgrave, 2011), and Deradicalising Islamists: Learning from Counter Radicalisation and De-radicalisation Programmes of Muslim-Majority States (Routledge, 2012, in print).
