Hi, I'm Leonie, just finishing up my Masters' in Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, and will then temporarily move back to my native Germany. I would eventually like to work as a policy assistant with EU institutions or lobbyists in Brussels or with the German Development Agency (GTZ/GIZ). I've done internships with an MEP (Member of the European Parliament) and with NATO and I've been involved with (World) Model United Nations. I am genuinely interested in sub-Saharan Africa and structural and symbolic violence as well as social capital, all of which are topics of my dissertation. I have fieldworld experience in Northern Ireland, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Israel/Occupied Palestinian Territories. I have also travelled widely in Europe and beyond and I have volunteered abroad. Fun fact: I adore letters and postcards! My passion even got me to live in Australia for a year!
