Maximiliane Linde holds a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Religious Studies from the University of Münster and is the founder and current head of the programme “Religion and Foreign Politics” at Polis180, a Grassroots-Think-Tank on European and Foreign Affairs. She is studying International Relations in Berlin. Her academic focus lies on peace and conflict studies, peacebuilding and international conflict resolution, gender as a category of analysis and the role of religion in international relations. Her studies are supported by the Heinrich Böll Foundation.
She was a participant of the DialoguePerspectives for two years and started working as a freelancer for the programme in 2019. She further gained practical experience on the intersection of religion and politics as an intern at the division Religion & Foreign Policy at the Federal Foreign Office in Berlin.
˝I attended several academic conferences on interreligious dialogue in the past, but I've never found a group like the one of DialoguePerspectives, that perfectly matches secularism with religions.
