About Brecht Volders

Welcome to my personal webpages.

I have obtained a master criminology, an advanced master international relations & diplomacy, and a MA strategy and international security. Today, my research interests primarily focus on nuclear terrorism, nuclear security, and terrorism.

My PhD focus on whether and why the organizational design of a terrorist organization matters for them to construct and detonate a crude nuclear device. This study seeks to improve theoretical explanations concerning the likelihood of terrorist organizations successfully implementing a nuclear armament project.

My teaching tasks are diverse, but are mainly on the topic of international relations, international security and decision-making by the European Union. (bachelor political sciences, master political sciences, and advanced master international relations & diplomacy).
