Jeanine is a Researcher at the Institute of Security and Global Affairs of Leiden University and a Research Fellow of the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism. She has a background in Liberal Arts & Sciences (BA) and International Relations (MA – cum laude).
Since
2013, she has been conducting research on the phenomenon of foreign fighters at Leiden University.

De Roy van Zuijdewijn has looked at a number of historical cases of foreign fighting, namely Afghanistan (1980s), Bosnia (1990s) and Somalia (2000s). She is also interested in how European societies respond to the current foreign fighter phenomenon in Syria and Iraq, particularly focusing on policies, threat assessments and public reactions (e.g. fear levels). She has authored a number of peerreviewed articles on this topic, as well as several book chapters, and has presented her research during various international conferences and high-level meetings.

De Roy van Zuijdewijn is currently pursuing a PhD-degree, researching the impact of terrorism on Western societies. She is also a board member of the European Expert Network on Terrorism (EENeT) and country coordinator for the PhD-network of the Terrorism Research Initiative (TRI).
