Dr. Christina Bache

Adjunct Faculty Member

Brussels Region

My professional interests are multi-disciplinary, focusing on responsible business practices, livelihood security of vulnerable groups, forced migration, and the meaningful inclusion of women in fragile and conflict-affected environments. Currently, I am a Research Affiliate at Queen's University and an Adjunct Professor in International Affairs at the Brussels School of Governance. Previously, I was a Visiting Fellow at the London School of Economics and Political Science, IDEAS, and a Visiting Fellow with the Wilfred Martens Centre for European Studies, the in-house think tank of the European People's Party.

My academic contributions include teaching courses on Crisis Management and International Organizations, advising students on the writing of their dissertations, contributing to joint research projects, conducting and presenting the findings of my research at conferences and in academic journals. As a practitioner, I have conducted peace and conflict assessments and strategic evaluations in the fields of development coordination and humanitarian assistance for the International Labour Organisation, European Parliament, German development agency (GIZ), and SPARK.

I have held pro bono roles, including as Chair of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education, Working Group on Business for Peace, Co-Chair of the International Crisis Group's Ambassador Council, Co-Founder of the Women in Foreign Policy Turkey Chapter, and Administrator of the Syria Support Network. I am also a member of the network for Academic Friends of the European Peacebuilding Liaison Office, Hollings Center's working groups on Profits to Peace, Iraq's Foreign Policy and Economic Challenges, and U.S.-Egypt Relations, the Research Center on Gender, Diversity, and Intersectionality at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the Middle East Research Network on Internal Displacement, and Migration, Business and Society.

I received my PhD from the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick. My dissertation focused on the impact of the Turkish private sector on human (economic) security and peace in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. I received my MA in International Peace and Conflict Resolution and BA in International Relations from American University in Washington, DC.

Originally from Texas, my experience traveling and working in the U.S., Central America, Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and Turkey has shaped my understanding of the frameworks necessary to ensure people can live a life of dignity, free from fear and want.
