Maximiliane Linde

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.

˝Thanks to DialoguePerspectives I have encountered inspiring people who have expanded, and also completely changed, my understanding of religion, engagement, and encounter. The interdisciplinarity of the programme combined with the high standards everyone holds each other to have made DialoguePerspectives a formative experience for me.
