Schoutje Schouten is a master's student at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. She is currently enrolled in the master's programme 'Philosophy and Society' and next year she will take part in the master's programme 'Strategic Studies' at the University of St Andrews. Interested in both fields, she has combined the two in her current research in military ethics. Schoutje focusses on ethical questions concerning the Rules of Engagement, the ethical dilemmas soldiers face during their missions and how well they - based upon their military education - feel prepared to deal with such ethical dilemmas. During her stay in Oxford, Schoutje will be working on her master's thesis, which will be based upon her research findings from her research-internship at the Veteran Institute in Doorn, the Netherlands.
