Dr. Thomas Kruiper

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Valencia. My research concerns the logic behind United Nations sanctions regimes since 1990, and is scheduled to be published in October 2019 under the title: “United Nations Sanctions Regimes and Selective Security”. Related to my PhD research I am the author of the book ‘Recursos naturales, guerras y sanciones internacionales‘ (Tirant lo Blanch, 2014).

I work as an associate professor at the IE School of Global and Public Affairs (Madrid) and Universidad Europea (Valencia), where I teach courses in Political Theory, Conflict Analysis, Peace Building, African Politics, and Security Alliances.

Besides my teaching activities I am also the director of Liberiamonitors, a consultancy that specializes in monitoring and evaluation projects in the NGO sector in Liberia.

I am also an associate researcher at ReSeT, a Madrid-Based think tank on international relations and transnational governance, where I focus on Conflict, Sanctions, and International Development.

I received Masters Degrees from the Universities of Amsterdam (2009, International Relations) and Valencia (2011, International Law).
