My name is Julia Leib and I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Potsdam, Germany. In my research, I study the transitions from armed conflicts to sustaining peace. Additionally, my research interests include peace concepts, peacekeeping operations, third-party interventions, simulation games and set-theoretic methods.

In my current research project, I focus on the ambivalent effects of digitalization and the widespread use of social media on international peacebuilding and the crisis communication of international organizations.

My previous PhD project examined which combinations of conflict environment and peacebuilding institutions are sufficient for sustaining peace and took a closer look at the underlying mechanisms.
