I received my Ph.D. in History with focus on international relations from the University of Kansa (USA) and I teach mainly in the areas of conflict transformation, negotiation and mediation strategies, peace building, global governance and research methods. My research and publications focus on peace processes and post-conflict peacebuilding, particularly the local application of the security-development nexus, SSR and DDR policies, peacebuilding policies such as land restitution and illicit drug substitution, civil society involvement in peacebuilding and reconciliation processes. Born and raised in Germany, I have lived and worked in different countries, including for over 17 years in Latin America. I have been trained in conflict transformation by the United Nations and the Organization of American States and I was actively involved in the Nicaraguan post-conflict reconstruction process. My current research focuses on the peacebuilding process in Colombia.
