Her work includes consultancy mandates for government institutions as well as national and international aid organisations. She also coordinates contributions to the postgraduate training courses in ‘Civilian Peacebuilding’ and ‘Fragility, Conflict & Statebuilding’ at the swisspeace academy in Basel. Before, Sibel worked over a period of ten years (2002 – 2011) with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in conflict areas, mainly in Africa and the Middle East, supervising humanitarian relief programs and managing interdisciplinary teams in often very complex and challenging environments.

Sibel holds an MSc in Development Policy, Process and Practice from the University of Reading (UK) and did her PhD in Politics/International Relations on post-conflict reconstruction within the fields of development and security at the University of Bristol (UK). With a specific focus on Liberia she looked at the UN-led reforms of the justice and security sectors aimed at long-term stability and analysed the effects of reform implementation on the local context.
