Fleur Diepstraten is an exchange student at the Balsillie School of International Affairs from the University of Konstanz, Germany. She takes courses in the Global Governance Program and is a varsity athlete who plays on the University of Waterloo’s Field Hockey Team.

Fleur completed two undergraduate degrees in Law and Environmental Science at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. Her growing passion for politics has led her to the interdisciplinary Double Degree Master Program in European Governance (a collaboration between Utrecht and Konstanz). During her first year in Germany, Fleur developed strong research interests in EU’s Foreign Policy and Diplomacy, which triggered her to become a visiting scholar in Canada.

Fleur’s current research focuses on environmental disaster governance and international security governance (specifically, NATO and OSCE).
