Prof. JP MacIntosh

Director of the Institute for Security & Resilience Studies (ISRS), Honorary Professor, University College London (UCL)

After a decade’s service with the British Army, I became a research scientist at the Ministry of Defence in 1995. Before my secondment to ISRS, I was the Chief of Research and Assessment at the Defence Academy of the UK. I have fulfilled several advisory roles for Cabinet Ministers and senior decision-takers, in the UK and abroad. In spring 2001, I co-authored the concept of “Resilience to Crises” for the UK Government, which anticipated the cascade of economic crises triggered since 2007. I have built teams that have worked in operational theatres and with many organisations facing the challenge of deep and broad transformation – in and out of conflict. How strategies gain traction through transformational research & innovation remains core to my work leading ISRS.
