Introducing Robert Schirmer

Our organization is glad to welcome Robert Schirmer, our new intern from Hertie School in Berlin. He received a Bachelor degree in Politics and Sociology. He did research on the interplay of migration, education and conflicts as well as was paying attention to postcolonial theories with a regional focus on the Middle East. Today he is a Master’s student in International Affairs at the Hertie School in Berlin.

Before joining CRISP he was engaged in anti-racism work for three years and gave workshops on the European Union and critical media usage. In CRISP he supports implementations of Coalition building simulation games and assists with projects that are dealing with different social problems in the MENA region and the Caucasus. He hopes to gain more insights into the implementation of simulation games and learn decisive factors of conflict transformative processes.
