On June 1, 2023, TraCe PI Prof. Dr Nicole Deitelhoff will receive the LOEWE top professorship from the state of Hesse. The professorship and the associated research group are located at both Goethe University Frankfurt and the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt. Deitelhoff will receive funding of nearly three million euros until May 31, 2028.
The LOEWE-funding will enable Nicole Deitelhoff to continue her research on the productivity of conflicts in Frankfurt and connects to her research activities within TraCe. The question of how peace orders must be designed to promote trust and sustainably limit violent conflicts remains at the center of her research. At TraCe, she works in the research area Institutions: Prevention and Legitimization of Political Violence.
In view of the central challenges in European and global security policy, the professorship therefore strengthens both Hesse as a research location and peace research in general. Thus, the Hessian Minister of Science, Angela Dorn, congratulated Nicole Deitelhoff on Twitter and thanked her for the important expertise she provides to politics through her work.
