Aline Leboeuf graduated from the Institut d'Etudes Politiques of Paris (Development major) and from Paris I Sorbonne (Master in International Relations). Her PhD's title was "Security sector reform in Sierra Leone" (Sorbonne University Paris I, January 25, 2013).

She has been a researcher at the French think tank in international relations Ifri since 2003 which led her to conduct research on security and development, security sector reform (SSR), protection of civilians (including security of expatriates), post-conflict situations in West Africa (especially Sierra Leone and Côte d'Ivoire), foresight (with the concept of 'fluid conflicts') and global health governance (the global management of avian influenza, the One Health approach).
