Georgios Kolliarakis works since 2009 with theUniversityofFrankfurt(Cluster of Excellence ‘Formation of Normative Orders’), where he conducts research on civil security and on strategic negotiations in conflict. Parallel to that, he manages an EU FP7 international collaboration in security research. Previously, he has been part of a research project on the ‘Transformation of Security Culture’ (BMBF/German Ministry of Research). At the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich (Geschwister-Scholl-Institut for Political Science) he has been since 2006 part of a European network about ‘Human Security in the Western Balkans’ and the role of criminal and terrorist organizations (EU FP6).

Georgios regularly participates in expert consultations at national and EU level on the future agenda, impact, and evaluation of security research. He has experience in engaging practitioners, scholars, and other societal stakeholders in various forums to promote exchange and transfer of knowledge and create wider social value out of research. He has presented over 20 papers in international conferences, and has chaired over 10 workshops and congress panels. In his graduate seminars he focuses on the analysis of non-intended effects of policies using table-top simulations. His practical training in multilateral negotiations and crisis mediation took place, among others, at the Clingendael Institute of International Relations in Den Haag.

After studying Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens, Georgios earned a Master’s degree in Political Geography from the Friedrich-Wilhelms University of Bonn, and a PhD in International Politics and Conflict Resolution from the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich.
