Armed Violence and Illicit Activities; Roles, rights and responsibilities of non-state actors from the perspective of law and politics.

Vision Statement

Our life world is a complex socio-political environment in which we hold different normative worldviews. Aspiring to understand and explain our global conflicts, I critically engage popular and one-dimensional explanations of those conflicts and question easy solutions. As an academic and as a responsible citizen I have the obligation to interrogate the solutions that we come up with. I seek to comprehend the (dis)entanglement of law and politics. I try to understand why states and non-state actors fail to interact in accordance with established norms and principles and explain it in a manner that might contribute to a process of transformative change.
