Jana Hönke's research is concerned with how 'local' and transnational security practices are co-produced and contested, and to what effect. How does that challenge, and help to rethink, International Relations? Her current work examines how authority and political geographies transform by studying the contested security arrangements related to multinational companies and transport infrastructures in contexts of fragility. Another project revolves around the global making of policing. She has also done research on counterterrorism, state building and development interventions. Theoretically she is interested in how knowledge and everyday practices travel and shape how security is governed, for whom and to what effect, across borders. While doing multi-sited fieldwork, much of her work is linked to Sub-Saharan Africa with research conducted in South Africa, Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia, Tanzania and Guinea.

Caspar's PhD project aims to investigate under what conditions agbiotech can help improve African agricultural performance in a way that best benefits local farmers and consumers. Innovation processes need to be aligned with the local context and the the needs and interests of local stakeholders, such as local farmers, consumers, and policy makers, but also NGO's, public and private funders. For this purpose, societal, technical and political contextual elements will be investigated. Research methods in this project include deskresearch, interviews, surveys, focusgroups, and workshops.
Prior to the PhD project at the RUG, Caspar worked as a consultant in innovation policy at the Technopolis Group in Amsterdam. His field of expertise was health and life sciences with a particular interest in system innovation- and learning processes. He contributed to evaluations, impact assessment and studies for international and national public bodies. He gained experience in a range of methods such as system- and network analysis, interviews, case studies, literature reviews, statistical analysis, mapping exercises and benchmark studies.
Caspar obtained a cum laude Master of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences at the VU University in Amsterdam. During his multidisciplinary studies he specialized in international public health, and sociology of science. Here he gained expertise in a range of topics including system thinking, health promotion, knowledge development and dissemination. Caspar is bilingually Dutch and German, but is also fluent in English.
