PhD Student

  • PhD, (anticipated 2016), The Fletcher School, Tufts University
  • MBA, ESSEC Graduate School of Management


Tina Robiolle Moul is currently a doctoral student working towards a Ph.D. in International Affairs at the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy. Her dissertation research will focus on the role that national school-based peace education programs can play in creating the conditions for self-sustaining peace in fragile states. She will particularly evaluate under what conditions these programs can reduce gender-based violence in schools. Graduated with an MBA from ESSEC Graduate School of Management in France, she has worked for the past 10 years as a conflict management consultant, program manager, and lecturer, designing and conducting capacity building programs in Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Afghanistan and France. A lecturer at the French Public Administration School (ENA) since 2001, she is conducting negotiation, conflict management, and leadership seminars for diplomats and for several graduate programs in France including for La Sorbonne University. In 2004, she started to work for the Burundi Leadership Training Program, a program initiated by the Africa Program of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars (WWICS). In this capacity, she has facilitated peace-building programs for Government officials, UN military observers, leaders of political parties, High Command of the Army and the Police. Her last project to date in Burundi is a conflict resolution curriculum for the Ministry of Education targeting secondary schools. Interested in giving back to her native region, she also developed and implemented a capacity-building program dedicated to Afghan women parliamentarians whose objective was to strengthen and promote the political participation of women in Afghanistan.
