Personal profile

Personal information

Lenneke obtained a Bachelor and Master of Arts in International Organizations and International Relations from the University of Groningen in 2010. She specialised in ethnic conflict and nationalism, the international and regional response to internal conflicts and Central and Eastern Europe. As a research intern for the Belgrade Centre of Security Policy, Lenneke carried research on security sector reform in the Western Balkans.

During her LLM in Military Law at the University of Amsterdam, Lenneke focused on military criminal law and peace support operations. She then worked as a program officer for Pax for Peace where she researched the indicators for human security and gave advice on the laws applicable to the use of explosive weapons in densely populated areas. Lenneke continued her research activities as a PhD candidate in Public International Law at the University of Glasgow. Her PhD research looked into the individual responsibility of peacekeeping commanders who fail to act against the commission of serious crimes against those they came to protect. In January 2017, Lenneke joined the VU's Social Sciences department as a lecturer in the LLM Law and Politics of International Security. She teaches security related courses in the political science and law and politics of international security master programmes and supervises students writing their thesis in three master programmes: political science, law and politics of international security and public administration. She also coordinates the minor programme Peace and Conflict Studies.

From 2017 to 2019 Lenneke worked as a lecturer in international relations at the University of Groningen.
