Jeanine studied International Relations in Historical Perspective at Utrecht University (cum laude). In 2013, she joined ISGA, where she conducted research on foreign fighters (historical context and current threat), terrorism threat assessments (particularly the Dutch Dreigingsbeeld Terrorisme Nederland) and lone-actor terrorism (see CLAT-project).

Jeanine is now doing a PhD focusing on the societal impact of terrorism. She is mainly interested in how citizens and authorities respond to acts of terrorism in Western societies and how the process of meaning-making is developing. She also looks at fear management and resilience.

In 2016, she co-authored the book “Terrorisme” with Prof. dr. Edwin Bakker. She is co-instructor of the MOOC “Terrorism and Counterterrorism: Comparing Theory & Practice”, and teaches courses on terrorism and foreign fighters to BA and MA students.

Besides her work at ISGA, Jeanine is Country Coordinator of the Dutch-Flemish Network of the Terrorism Research Initiative (TRI) and member of the Board of the European Expert Network on Terrorism (EENeT).
