Vita

Steffen Eckhard is a research fellow with the Geschwister Scholl Institute of Political Science (GSI) at the University of Munich (LMU) and scientific coordinator of the DFG research group International Public Administration.

In his research, teaching and consultancy work, he focuses mainly on the link between politics and administration in national and international organizations with a focus on global peace and security governance, international police missions and security sector reform. In previous projects, he conducted research in Afghanistan and Kosovo and at the headquarters of major international organizations such as the United Nations, European Union, NATO, or the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).

Steffen Eckhard studied political and administrative science in Konstanz, Grenoble and Stockholm. In 2013, he received a PhD from the University of Konstanz. Wolfgang Seibel (Konstanz), Richard Caplan (Oxford) and Dirk Leuffen (Konstanz) assessed the thesis titled “Managing Peacebuilding: Strategic Management, Organizational Performance and the Outcome of Post-Conflict Police Reform in Kosovo and Afghanistan”. Steffen received scholarships from the Friedrich-Ebert Foundation and the Ministry of Education Baden-Württemberg and research funding from the Center of Excellence at Konstanz University. Between 2011 and 2014, Steffen worked as a research associate at the Berlin-based think tank Global Public Policy Institut (GPPi) for clients such as the German Foreign Office, United Nations and the Center for International Peace Operations (ZIF). Since 2014, Steffen is a non-resident fellow with GPPi.
