Lisa De Roeck is a PhD researcher at the Politics and Public Governance (PPG) research group at the Department of Political Science at the University of Antwerp. She is also an associated member of the Government and Law research group. Her research focuses on the way cities deal with policy conflict on climate change policies. Employing a case study design, she examines how conflict is handled in urban settings, while also studying how actors in governance processes can be induced to deal with conflict more productively using theatre-based methods. Her research is part of the CONTRA project, which is funded by JPI Urban Europe.

Prior to this, she worked as a policy advisor at a women’s rights organisation, and as a research and policy analyst at a children’s rights organisation. She holds an MSc in Political Science from Ghent University and a Bachelor after Bachelor in International North-South Cooperation from UC Leuven Limburg.
