Since 2007, Jaap de Wilde is Professor in International Relations & Security Studies at the Department of International Relations & International Organization (IRIO). From 2008-2012 he was head of department. He is co-founder and governor of Globalisation Studies Groningen. Since 2013 he is chairman of the Dutch Foundation for Peace Research. From 2001 to 2007, De Wilde was professor in European Security Studies at the Department of Political Sciences, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and from 1995-2007 senior research fellow in European Studies and IR at the Centre for European Studies (CES), University of Twente. From 1993-1995 he worked as senior research fellow at the Copenhagen Peace Research Institute (COPRI).
De Wilde analyses how security issues emerge on international political agendas, and the implications this has for power politics. One of the areas he currently focuses on concerns the relationship between energy security and geopolitics. The emphasis is in particular on analyzing the friction between market oriented and sovereignty oriented discourses.

De Wilde is one of the initiators of the conference Past, Present and Future of Peace Research. Three generations of scientists will reflect on peace and security, international law, human rights, development issues, civil wars and peacebuilding, patterns of enmity & amity, as well as the institutional position of peace research in academia.
