Profile

Gabriele Jacobs is Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Culture at the Department of Organisation and Personnel Management at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM).

Her research interests include: Organizational change, justice and identity, leadership, international management, civic engagement, co-creation, methodology.

Gabriele Jacobs is the co-director of the Centre of Excellence on Public Safety Management (CESAM) (www.rsm.nl/cesam) which she co-founded in 2014.
She graduated with her PhD from University of Münster, Germany in 1998 within a multidisciplinary PhD program of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). From 1992 - 99 she worked as researcher and assistant professor at the University of Cologne (Department of Economic and Social Psychology). In 1998 she was Visiting Professor at HEC, Paris (Department of Human Resource Management). Next to presenting her work at international conferences, Gabriele publishes in a wide range of academic journals in organizational behavior, marketing and management and also in journals with an applied focus.

She is involved in several EU-projects in the field of safety and security. Next to this she coordinates and conducts national research projects focusing e.g. on the Dutch police reform and changes in the law system.

Currently she coordinates the Erasmus+ Knowledge Alliance on "International Security Management", which aims at creating sustainable and concrete resources and structures to foster international security collaborations. It's consortium consists of nine partners from six European partner institutions. Between 2010 and 2014 she coordinated COMPOSITE (Comparative Police Studies in the EU), a FP7 EU project in the field of security. COMPOSITE (www.composite-project.eu/) looked into small and large scale change processes in police forces across Europe. The project identified factors contributing to success or failure of these change processes, with a special focus on the role of professional and organizational identity. Its consortium consisted of 15 partners from 10 European countries, covering universities, police academies, technology research institutes and consultancies. 

Gabriele derives her academic passion and inspiration from the collaboration and dialogue with inter-disciplinary academics and multi-sector practitioners. She feels that academia needs to address core societal challenges in order to facilitate sustainable and innovative solutions. 

Gabriele Jacobs is married and has a son and two daughters. A dog and (adopted) parrot also belong to the family. She loves traveling, sport, reading and admiring art, especially photography. Also she is excited about the new family hobby, namely discovering the Netherlands by boat.
