I am a lecturer and PhD Candidate at the Department of Political Science and Public Administration at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. As a lecturer, I have mainly taught in the bachelor Public Administration and Organization Sciences, the master Public Administration, and the minor Peace and Conflict Studies. In this latter programme, I developed and teach the course Peace and Conflict: From Theory to Practice, which aims to familiarize students with the practical context of (primarily) international humanitarian action. My PhD research is about how the policy buzzword of resilience in security, humanitarian aid and development assistance translates into practice in Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey as these countries respond to the impact of the Syria crisis. It is based on policy discourse analyses as well as interviews with professionals from international and non-governmental organizations in Jordan, Lebanon and southern Turkey.
My research interests include the EU, UN, humanitarian aid and development assistance, humanitarian-development nexus, local ownership, policy and buzzwords, refugees and migration, sexual violence, private sector engagement, and the diversity of and interaction between different humanitarian actors.
