About

My broad research interest is on the epistemic foundations of global order. Attempting to combine insights from international relations theory and theories of global governance with contemporary practice theory, new (french) pragmatism and science studies (noteably post-ANT) I study processes and practices of ordering the globe. My empirical interest lies in understanding how the merging fields of security, peace and development, become re-ordered by international organizations (UN, EU, AU), secretariats (e.g. the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations), expert commissions (e.g. the Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty) and academic research (e.g. the discipline of International Relations). In my current research I focus on how the international community handles the problem of piracy, and how it leads to new practices of cooperation and governance.
