James Gow is professor of International Peace and Security at KCL. His KCL biography states:

I am Professor of International Peace and Security, and Director of the International Peace and Security Programme. I joined King's in 1990. From 1991 to 1997, I was responsible for a number of EC-funded projects on Security and Democracy in Central and Eastern Europe. Between 1994 and 1998, I served as an expert advisor and an expert witness for the Office of the Prosecutor at the UN International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, where I was involved in establishing subject matter jurisdiction and was the first witness to give evidence in the Trial Chamber and the first person ever to give evidence at an international criminal tribunal. In 1997-1998, I was an Expert Advisor to the UK Secretary of State for Defence during the Ministry of Defence's Strategic Defence Review, and contributed to work on the 1999-2000 Strategic Context Paper. I have been involved in background preparations for the 2010 Strategic Defence and Security Review.

I am a permanent non-resident scholar with the Liechtenstein Institute, Princeton University. I have held visiting positions at the University of Sheffield, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington D.C., the Institute of War and Peace Studies, Columbia University, and the Centre of International Studies, Princeton University. Among other activities, I was a member of the British Film Institute In-View Advisory Board (2007-9) and a member of the ESRC/AHRC ‘Global Uncertainties’ Development Panel and the ESRC/AHRC ‘Global Uncertainties Fellowship’ Commissioning Panel (2008-9).

I was Reviews Editor for International Peacekeeping between 1994 and 1997 and am currently Chair of the Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism Advisory Council, editor of the Routledge Contemporary Security Issues series (with Rachel Kerr) and a member of the editorial advisory boards of the Journal of Genocide Research, Media, War and Conflict, Slovene Studies and the Encyclopedia Princetoniensis.[2]
