Profil personnel

Présentation

Eric Sangar is a FNRS research fellow affiliated with the Tocqueville Chair of International Security at the University of Namur (Belgium), where he is part of the research group headed by Thierry Braspenning-Balzacq. Eric is also an associated researcher at the Centre Emile Durkheim of Sciences Po Bordeaux, and an associated member of the European research project INFOCORE (www.infocore.eu). In his research, he is currently focussing on a research project about the influence of collective memory on media discourses and political decision-making in contemporary conflict; however, he is also participating in several research projects covering the role of NGOs in conflict discourses, conflict perceptions of contemporary military organizations, or the manufacturing of collective emotions in the justification of political violence. Previously, Eric worked as a Research Associate at King's College London, as a Fernand Braudel Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institut de Recherche Stratégique de l’Ecole Militaire (IRSEM) in Paris, and as a Research Associate at the Department of International Relations at the University of Stuttgart, where he was a member of the project “Multiple collective identities in international debates about war and peace since the end of the Cold War”.

He has taught a variety of courses at several leading European universites, including King's College London, Sciences Po Paris, and the Humboldt University of Berlin. His teaching subjects include IR theory, conflict analysis, strategic thought, collective memory, and Franco-German relations.

Eric has published in various peer-reviewed journals in English, French, and German language. The book version of his PhD thesis, entitled “Historical Experience: Burden or Bonus in Today’s Wars? The British Army and the German Bundeswehr in Afghanistan”, was published in 2014.
