Research Project D8
Angela Heucher is a research associate in the research project 'Talk and Action': How International Organizations Respond to Areas of Limited Statehood (a sub-project of the Collaborative Research Center “Governance in Areas of Limited Statehood”). Angela conducted fieldwork at international organizations (IOs) and interviewed IO-staff both at headquarter and country office level. She was responsible for case study research on IOs’ food security programmes in Western Africa (Cote d’Ivoire, Niger and Sierra Leone).
Her research interests include international organizations, in particular their role as external governance actors in areas of limited statehood, inter-organizational relations as well as the fragmentation and complexity of global governance. In her own research, she analyses how international organizations perceive developments in the field of food security governance (such as overlap) and with which strategies they respond. In doing so, she compares international organizations at the core and at the periphery of the field.
