Roos van der Haer

Assistant professor of International Relations at the Institute of Political Science, Leiden University

My current research focuses on the empirical examination of the causes and consequences of child soldiering, recruitment strategies of rebel groups, psychological consequences of conflict participation, quantitative survey research (especially in conflict settings), and more broadly, micro level conflict research. The work has been published, among others, in the Journal of European International Relations, Conflict Management and Peace Science, Aggressive Behavior, International Journal of Behavioral Development, and Survey Methodology. I have conducted field research in the DRC, Mali, Namibia, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda.

I received my PhD from the University of Konstanz (Germany) in 2012, and prior to that studied at the University of Leiden and the University of Manchester.
