Annick T.R. Wibben is Anna Lindh Professor of Gender, Peace & Security at the Swedish Defence University. Previously she was professor of Politics and International Studies at the University of SanFrancisco from 2005-2019, where she also served as chair of the Politics Department, and has directed both the Peace and Justice Studies and the International Studies programs.
