Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
I am also a Senior Associate Research Fellow at the Institut d’Etudes européennes, Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB), primarily researching how international organisations engaged in peace support operations learn from their experience. I focus on civilian crisis management missions, particularly in the Western Balkans. I hold a PhD from the Department of Peace Studies, University of Bradford, UK. My thesis is entitled “The European Union and Learning from Support for Post-Conflict Police Reform: A Critical Analysis of Macedonia (2001-2005)”.

I have worked both in research and policy. Until recently I was Head of the Humanitarian Affairs Unit at the Future Worlds Centre in Cyprus and a consultant for UNDP in Cyprus. I have also held Marie Curie Research Fellowships at the Bonn International Centre for Conversion (Germany) and the Centre for International Cooperation and Security (UK). I have worked as Parliamentary Liaison Officer at the European Bureau for Conservation and Development (Brussels), worked at the European Commission's Forward Studies Unit, and as Chemical Weapons Convention Coordinator for the Union of Concerned Scientists (Washington, DC).

Besides a PhD, I hold an MRes (Distinction) in international relations from the University of Bradford, a DEA in political science from Sciences-Po in Paris and a BA (Distinction) in foreign affairs and French literature and civilisation from the University of Virginia.

Hi Isabelle

I've only just started my PhD (Sept. 08) so this is why we missed each other. Also I'm based in London and only go up to Bradford when I need to.

Let me know when you are next in London / Bradford / Skopje and it would be great to meet up. What are you doing now - still Balkans based?

Best wishes

Hello again. I've researched a bit into the organizations you mentioned. There is a lot there and hopefully I'll find some opportunities. I also have some friends in Europe looking around for me.

My schedule is more concrete now so I thought I'd let you know. I will be available starting May 19th anywhere in Europe and must be in Amsterdam July 1st. So that gives me almost 6 weeks that I could help somewhere. If you know of anyone that may be interested feel free to let them know about me.

P.S. Can I add you as a friend?
