Juneseo Hwang is an intern with the Peace and Development Programme at SIPRI. His research interests are greening security sector and environmental peacebuilding. Previously, Juneseo worked as a voluntary campaigner in Green Korea United, specialised in two areas – investigating environmental problems of military bases and operations in Korea and Japan and monitoring protected species in the de-militarised zone (DMZ) in the Korean Peninsula. During his studies at the University of Bradford, Juneseo conducted a field study on environmental problems of NATO military bases in Germany and Italy. His MA dissertation focused on environmental governance in post-conflict Northern Ireland after the Good Friday Agreement.
Juneseo is currently exploring international environmental cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region, which stimulates two research interests - NATO’s environmental policy and its influence on cross-border environmental cooperation in the Baltic Sea Region, and the effectiveness of international environmental cooperation between democratic and non-democratic countries in promoting peace and security in their borders.
