About Me

My overall research interests include conflict resolution and particularly mediation of armed conflict; strategic nonviolence and unarmed insurrections; and conflict related sexual violence. In my dissertation, using survey experiments and interviews, I map and explain different mediator styles of individuals working for peacemaking inter-governmental organisations (IGOs) such as the United Nations, European Union and African Union, but also mediating international non-governmental organisations (NGOs) like Crisis Management Initiative, MediatEUr and HDC.
