Om Richard Georgi
In my PhD project, I research the politics of human rights activism in transforming conflicts. I am interested in how human rights activists perceive of, and seek to shape, social transformation in post-conflict transition. Empirically, my research project focuses on the discourse of human rights activists throughout the current peace process with the FARC-EP in Colombia.
I graduated in Political Science from the Freie Universität Berlin. Before starting my PhD at SGS, I worked, among others, as human rights observer in Mexico and researcher for the German Institute for Human Rights.
I have teaching experiences in the fields of: Political Theory and Sociology, International Relations, Gender Studies, Postcolonial Studies, and Global Governance.
My overall research interests concern: Human Rights, Political and Social Theories, Civil Society, Conflict Transformation, Postcolonial Theory, Feminist and Gender Research
In addition to my PhD research, I volunteer for the international human rights organization Peace Brigades International, and I am member of the board of trustees of the Kenyan grassroots organization YHEPP
