Stijn Eeckeloo obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science at Ghent University with a minor in Politics of the Global South and a major in European and International Politics. The minor sparked his interest in the Global South, which explains his choice for a Master's Degree in Conflict and Development at Ghent University, which he is currently finishing.
During his Bachelor years, Stijn wrote a research paper on R2P and the African Union which sparked his interest in diplomacy. For his master thesis, he will focus on non-traditional diplomacy in the Global South. Therefore, during his internship at UNU-CRIS, Stijn will be assisting with the launch of UNTRAD under the supervision of Luk Van Langenhove.
Furthermore, he will be involved in some editorial assistance of a book written by Luk Van Langenhove and Yannis Skalli-Housseini.
