Dr. Moritz Schuberth

moritz-schuberthI am a political scientist with a penchant for interdisciplinary research, most notably on non-state armed groups, security governance and urban violence. Currently I am working with the global humanitarian agency Mercy Corps in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo. Prior to this I gained work experience at the Directorate-General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations of the European Commission, the German Federal Foreign Office and the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees.

I completed my PhD in Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Bradford in March 2016. My thesis entitled The Strategies of International Agencies towards Community-based Armed Groups: Institutional Logics and Organisational Frames in Post-conflict Peacebuilding is based on six months of fieldwork in Haiti and investigates the challenge of coordinating stabilisation, conflict resolution and statebuilding efforts in fragile and conflict-affected states.
