Archishman Goswami


Archishman is a first-year MPhil International Relations student studying at St Anne’s College. His research interests lie in the field of security and strategic studies, with a particular focus on the use of intelligence, counterintelligence and covert action as determinants of foreign policy. He also maintains an interest in area studies, particularly geopolitics in the Indo-Pacific and the MENA.

Prior to his time in Oxford, Archishman studied at King’s College London, being awarded First-Class (Hons) for both his BA in International Relations and MA in National Security Studies. He conducted research on Israel’s role in the Second Libyan Civil War (2014-2019), and ISIS’ practice of counterintelligence for his undergraduate and Master's theses respectively. During his time at King’s, Archishman took steps to expand student engagement with security and strategic studies, serving as President of the KCL Intelligence and Security Society, and as Editor-in-Chief and Vice-President of the KCL Geopolitical Risk Society. His experience within the field has also extended beyond the classroom, working in think tanks such as the Council on Geostrategy.

He also enjoys writing on geopolitics, national security and strategic affairs more widely, having authored short, medium and long-form pieces for a variety of academic platforms and journals. A full list of his published work can be found on Archishman's LinkedIn profile.
