The Bulletin Podcast – Episode 03 – Prof. Dr. Solveig Richter

Dear readers and listeners,

We are very proud to bring you the third episode of The Bulletin Podcast.
The podcast’s goal is to interview the fascinating students and researchers of the Brandt School and hear experiences and voices from all over the world.

In this third episode, our host Maria Brackin interviews Prof. Dr. Solveig Richter, the Junior Professor for International Conflict Management at the Willy Brandt School of Public Policy.

Prof. Dr. Solveig Richter’s focus lies on political conflicts, post-conflict peacebuilding, external democracy promotion, the role of international organizations, esp. the European Union, and on the effectiveness of instruments of civil crisis and conflict management. Before coming to Erfurt, Solveig Richter worked as a senior research associate at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs/Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik Berlin (SWP), in the research division EU External Relations. There she primarily concentrated on EU enlargement policy and political transition in South Eastern Europe, the European security architecture and resource conflicts. Solveig Richter researched for her Ph.D. at the University of Technology Dresden and the Institute for Peace Research and Security Policy in Hamburg (IFSH). She is a trained international election observer and has also worked during her professional career as journalist and political consultant.

We will be thrilled to hear your feedback, as well as to receive suggestions for the next episodes!
