Damon Golriz is a lecturer at The Hague University of Applied Sciences and a Research Fellow with the research group on International Peace, Justice and Security. He frequently lectures on Iranian affairs at the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs, Leiden University’s newest faculty, located in The Hague. Currently, Damon is the project leader of the consortium “Engineering for Good Governance and Peace”. The mission of this consortium is to implement small, decentral and self-sustaining drinking water utensils for people with humanitarian need with the ambition to stimulate peace and political development for those people. In this context, connecting the natural- and social sciences has been Damon’s focus for the past five years. He developed academic courses and concepts that investigate how engineering can be subservient to peace, justice and political development. An integral aspect of Damon’s international projects have been role modelling and leadership of/for his students.
