Dr Mateja Peter

Dr Mateja Peter is leading Global Transitions, PeaceRep’s non-ODA work strand. She is also Lecturer in International Relations and Director of the Centre for Global Law and Governance at the University of St Andrews.

Mateja researches global governance and international organisations, peace operations and peacebuilding, and the politics of international law. Theoretically, she works primarily within a constructivist IR tradition, but her work is interdisciplinary, drawing on international political theory, legal scholarship, and sociology. Mateja’s research seeks to better understand theoretical and policy implications of the shift from short-term to sustained third-party engagements in contemporary interventions; and the subsequent push-back against these developments. Her work employs archival research and fieldwork.
