Political scientist focusing on the social, political and humanitarian consequences of violent conflict, and strategies of response.

More recently, Astri has focused on the politics of humanitarian policies in the UN system, concepts of human security and peacebuilding. She is also working on strategies of post-war reconstruction and statebuilding, with particular reference to Afghanistan.

She has led several research projects funded by the Research Council of Norway: The Multilateral Aid system (2001-03); Aid in Post-Conflict Situations (2003-05), and Violence in the Post-Conflict State (2005-08).  Astri Suhrke has participated in projects commissioned by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, various UN agencies (particularly UNHCR), SIDA, DANIDA, the Swiss Agency for Development Cooperation, DFID, the World Bank and UNDP. She is a member of a committee of experts serving the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

Her most recent books are When More is Less. The International Project in Afghanistan (2011), The Peace In Between: Post-War Violence and Peacebuilding (co-edited anthology, 2012) and Roads to Reconciliation (2005) (co-edited anthology).
