Dr. Silbernagl currently manages the GIZ programme “Urban Energies/Dialogues for Urban Change”, which looks at innovative forms of learning to support the implementation of national urban development policies and strengthen municipal capacities. For over twenty years, she has worked on governance-related issues, from decentralized service delivery, to human rights, and more recently from urban safety to integrated urban development. Her main regional areas of expertise entail post-conflict and violence-afflicted countries and stretch from Sub-Saharan Africa to South Eastern Europe and South East Asia. For her PhD at University College London, UK, she critically examined the social, economic and political impact of affirmative action policies in Uganda and interrogated their functionality. Since 2013, she is a member of the board of directors of the International Centre for the Prevention of Crime, ICPC in Montreal.
