Dr Chloé Lewis

Project Associate
Independent researcher

Chloé Lewis is a research associate working with the Global Security Programme’s Conflict Platform project, specifically on the African Great Lakes. She completed her DPhil at the Department of International Development at the University of Oxford, focusing on responses to sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Her research is particularly attentive to contemporary changes in the operation and analysis of armed conflict – especially around its interaction with gender – and how these bear upon changes in responses to armed conflict, in policy and in practice. Committed to working across scholarship, policy, and practice, Chloé has collaborated with the NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security, the World Bank, the International Rescue Committee (IRC), Search for Common Ground, MONUSCO, and the UK Ministry of Defence.
