Research

Our research is driven by thinking beyond borders. International Relations and Political Theory are our core disciplines. We focus on transnational terrorism, crisis prevention, and peace consolidation as seen, for instance, in my recent work on a theory of Islamism - a theory that contributes to a better understanding of Islamists' goals and behavior. Plus, we cannot resist pursuing research projects completely off the beaten track - such as LSAP.

Teaching

We consider ourselves as mentors of future generations. Sharing research-based expertise with our students is one of our main goals. In our lectures and seminars, we encourage our students to become individuals with a broad knowledge and profound analytical skills. Being on eye level with our students is crucial to us. We strongly believe that only a self-reflected and well-educated generation will be able to face future challenges in a complex world.

Consulting

We are enthusiastic about sharing our academic expertise with private companies and public institutions - such as Germany's Federal Foreign Office or the European Commission. Expertise derived from research encourages the further development of institutions and individuals. Being convinced that individual approaches are key to success, we are pleased to offer our clients tailor-made solutions based on intercultural competence.

Professor | CV

A Professor of Political Science in the Department of Philosophy and Political Science, I am currently Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Theology at TU Dortmund University, Germany.

From 1996 to 2001, I studied Social Sciences and Geography at Giessen University (Germany) and the University of Tampere (Finland), completing my Ph.D. as a DAAD-scholarship-holder at Giessen University with a thesis on Indonesia's democratic transition in 2003. In the following years, I became a DFG Postdoctoral Research Fellow and directed several projects for Germany's Federal Foreign Office. In 2008, I completed my habilitation on transnational Islamism, followed by an interim professorship in International Relations at the University of Jena. In 2009, I became an Associate Professor, was Head of Department from 2011-14, and was made a Full Professor of Political Science at TU Dortmund University in 2013. In the same year, I was admitted to the Global Young Faculty (GYF) of the Mercator Foundation. From 2014-16, I worked as a Vice-Dean for Research and Finance in my faculty.

Whether in research, teaching or consulting, I am internationally focused: I have been a visiting researcher at Yale University, New Haven, CT (USA), Parahyangan Catholic University Bandung (Indonesia), the University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and the University of Lucerne (Switzerland).

In terms of research, I am particularly interested in issues related to security. While I had established a regional focus on Southeast Asia in the earlier stages of my career, I have since broadened my scope. In recent years, I have concentrated on topics such as transnational terrorism and military interventions. In particular, I am keen to derive a theory of Islamism which will help to understand the motivations and the behavior of Islamist groups. Currently, I am trying to shed some light on the prospects and limitations of militant Islamist disengagements.

I am the author of several books and many articles, including "A Conceptual Framework of Sunni Islamism" (Politics, Religion & Ideology), "Peacebuilding through Militant Islamist Disengagement: conclusions drawn from the case of Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya in Egypt" (Peacebuilding), "The Concept of Human Security Revisited: Theoretical and Empirical Problems of a Post-Cold War Security Approach" (Nomos), and "For Still by Policy the World is Ruled? On the Decreasing Significance of Critical Security Studies/the Welsh School in IR", Zeitschrift für Internationale Beziehungen (zib, published in German, together with Steve Schlegel).

Moreover, I have been the Principal Investigator (PI) of several research and consulting projects focusing, among other issues, on aspects of democratization in Southeast Asia and regional co-operation in Central Asia.









As a committed member of my department, faculty, and university, I have frequently participated in and chaired appointment and examination committees as well as working as an adviser on developing TU Dortmund University's internationalization strategy. Furthermore, I also initiated two new Master programs in my faculty, the Master of Philosophy and Political Science (MAPP) and the Master of Religion and Politics (MAREPOL). As a contribution to the scientific community, I regularly provide reviews and assessments for national and international peer-reviewed journals and publishers, research foundations, ministries, and other institutions.
