Bruno De Cordier

Bruno De Cordier works for the Conflict Research Group of Ghent University. His research interests include humanitarian aid and –policy, the social impact of globalization and, geographically, Eurasia (the former USSR) and Pakistan. Before joining the university, he worked as a field officer and in humanitarian coordination for the UN. In that capacity, he lived, worked and traveled for more than six years in his region of interest and returns regularly, convinced that an actively interested traveler observes best what actually happens on the grounds. Bruno De Cordier also worked and lived for one and a half year in Bangladesh, and did a series of short- and long-term observation and monitoring missions for the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and for the European Union in Eurasia, Pakistan and the Balkans. He publishes regularly in specialized journals and readers, and has authored several books.
