Richard Byrne

Senior Lecturer, Land, Farm and Agri-business Management Department, Harper Adams University

With over 20 years experience of agricultural and rural development, and a military background in Information Operations I now focus my energy on food security and livelihood issues related to conflict and  disaster. Combining agricultural and food industry knowledge with geo-political awareness  I regularly contribute to food security assessments,  and the development of livelihood strategies within post conflict and disaster prone environments. I currently run the Harper Adams’ University -‘Rural Security Research Group’ an interdisciplinary team focussed on rural crime and organised criminal activity in agricultural business.
