Maria Martin de Almagro
I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Conflict and Development Studies at the University of Ghent (Belgium) and a member of its Conflict Research Group (CRG). I am the Co-Head editor of the Journal of Intervention and Statebuilding and the Research Lead on Gender and Climate Change for the Canada Research Network on Women, Peace and Security. Furthermore, I am also a member of the FBA Research Working Groups and of the Varieties of Peace Research Network.
My research is at the intersection of gender studies, international peacebuilding governance, and the role of knowledge production and meaning-making practices in world politics. My policy and community engagement activities in English, French and Spanish involve regular participation, in collaboration with the national governments and international organisations, in multinational policy dialogues on political and strategic affairs in gender, feminist foreign policy, and climate change and conflict dynamics, alongside representatives of governments, academia, and civil society.
