David Mutimer is Deputy Director of YCISS and Associate Professor of Political Science at York University.  His research considers issues of contemporary international security through lenses provided by critical social theory, as well as inquiring into the reproduction of security in and through popular culture.  Much of that work has focused on weapons proliferation as a reconfigured security concern in the post-cold war era, and has tried to open possibilities for alternative means of thinking about the security problems related to arms more generally.  In the past few years this programme of research has concentrated on small arms and light weapons.  More recently he has turned his attention to the politics of the global war on terror, and of the regional wars around the world presently being fought by Canada and its allies.  He is presently engaged in a project on rethinking arms control, what has produce a special issue of Contemporary Security Policy (2011) co-edited with Neil Cooper, and is now engaged in a large-scale project on implementing arms export controls.
