Andrea Warnecke is an assistant professor at the Institute for History.
I completed my PhD in Political and Social Sciences at the European University Institute (EUI), Florence, in 2016. Before joining Leiden University in August 2021, I was a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the Department of International Politics, Aberystwyth University. As a Marie Curie Fellow, I led a research project on informal networks between non-state and state-based forms of power and their implications for legitimacy claims in global governance (POLINGO). At Aberystwyth, I also co-directed the Centre for the International Politics of Knowledge and became a Fellow of the UK HEA.
My research interests are international governmental and non-governmental organizations, peacebuilding, humanitarianism, and crisis governance with a particular focus on institutional knowledge practices and legitimacy claims. This research is informed by several years of experience as a senior researcher and consultant on conflict, development, and migration in international organizations, NGOs, and on behalf of government agencies. I hold an M. Res in Social and Political Sciences (EUI), an MA in History from the University of Bochum, and a Postgraduate Certificate Teaching in Higher Education (PG Cert) from Aberystwyth University.
