I served in the German army for 8 years and was, during that time, deployed to several peace support operations. At the moment I'm studying towards a degree in International Studies. My main research area is the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. I speak/understand Hebrew and Arabic to an extent.
Why I want peace:
The conflict simply can't go on that way. What is needed is an approach that focuses on human security instead of traditional (military) security. I would like to help people empower to work towards a lasting peace solution.
Interests and activities:
I like learning languages (mostly in my free time), music, and, most of all, my family (my wife and our 5-year old daughter).
Something you didn't know about me:
How I found mepeace.org:
through the "Peace and Collaborative Development Network" site
What I want to achieve here:
Predominantly, I'd like to seriously discuss with others the Middle East conflict and possible solutions to it.
