Sanne Weber is Assistant Professor Peace and Conflict Studies at the Centre for International Conflict - Analysis & Management (CICAM) at the Radboud University. Her research and teaching address how post-conflict countries deal with their violent past and take steps towards peace and reconciliation. Sanne’s main expertise is gender. She aims to understand how conflicts change gender relations and how gender equality can be promoted in the post-conflict situation. She does so from the perspective of those people – both survivors and perpetrators – most directly affected by conflict, by using ethnographic, participatory and visual research methods.

In her book ‘Gender and Citizenship in Transitional Justice: Everyday Experiences of Reparation and Reintegration in Colombia’, based on her PhD and postdoctoral research, Sanne explores what gender-just peace means for former displaced persons and ex-combatants in Colombia. Sanne has also done research on the mental health of young people in conflict-affected areas in Colombia, and into the experiences of female ex-combatants in Guatemala. She is also strongly interested in research methods and ethics, and has published several articles on this topic.

Prior to and next to her academic work, Sanne has worked as a researcher and programme officer at human rights organisations, including Impunity Watch. She has strong experience with research, policy and lobby at the international level, and tries to make the link with policymaking in her academic research too.
