Pauline Hoffmann is a research fellow at the Chair of Public Administration and Public Policy at Zeppelin University. After contributing to the joint research project HybOrg, she is now working on the InnoLoK project, which examines local crisis management during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Pauline is interested in the effectiveness of (inter)national interventions in times of crisis. Special attention is devoted to the impact of foreign assistance. This is also reflected in her latest research, which focuses on the effect of more than 8,000 EU humanitarian aid operations on violence patterns during active civil conflicts.
Pauline graduated from the University of Mannheim and Lund University with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science. During her master’s studies, she visited the University of Konstanz, University of Zurich and Utrecht University. She completed a M.A. in Politics and Public Administration with specializations in International Administration and Conflict Management and Methods and a M.Sc. in European Governance. Alongside her studies, Pauline contributed to the work of internationally operating research institutions and think tanks like the GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences and the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP).
