Portrait of Dr Nadine Ansorg

Dr Nadine Ansorg

Senior Lecturer in International Conflict Analysis
Research Fellow at the GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies in Hamburg

About

Nadine's research focuses in institutional reform in post-conflict societies, in particular security sector reform, the role of international state and non-state actors in these reform processes, and the conditions for establishing peace in divided and post-conflict societies. She is particularly interested in alternative modes of political order beyond the European nation-state. In her research, Nadine uses a mixed-methods approach to explore dynamics and conditions of peacebuilding in sub-Saharan Africa and beyond. In her work, she cooperates with civil society organisations in post-conflict countries as well as international donor agencies.
From 2016-2019, Nadine has co-directed a joint project on “Security sector reform and the stability of post-war peace” (funded by the German Research Foundation) together with Prof Dr Sabine Kurtenbach from GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies. She has previously worked as Post-Doctoral Researcher for Grants and Impact at the School of Politics and International Relations, as Project Coordinator and Research Fellow in the project “Institutions for Sustainable Peace” at the GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies Hamburg (2012-215) and as Acting Junior Professor for Development Politics and Politics of Africa at Bayreuth University (2014-2015).
