Forschungsinteressen und Publikationen

My research focuses on the European integration process, European Union politics, and particularly the external relations of the EU. My most recent work concentrates on European Culture and Science diplomacy (article under preparation with Petra Guasti), the role of the EU as a mediator in international peace negotiations (project and JCMS article with Julian Bergmann), and theorising the euro crisis (co-edited special issue of Journal of European Public Policy). My previous work has dealt with the role of the EU in (external) policy-making fields such as climate change and international migration, where I have particularly analysed aspects of effectiveness and normative power of the EU. My PhD (and some subsequent work) has analysed, modified and applied neofunctionalism to various aspects of EU policy-making.
