My courses



My research interests span over the fields of international relations and policy analysis with a focus on the European Union and the process of European integration. Current research projects involve the EU as an international actor, the Europeanization of national foreign policy and EU-China relations. I also work on questions such as EU policy coordination in the area of economic and social policy and the emergence of new governance frameworks in the wake of the financial and economic crisis.

Teaching and Administration

I am currently teaching courses in international and European politics on undergraduate and graduate levels. These courses include International politics A, International politics B/C, European Union B/C, Comparative European Politics B, Euroculture (political perspectives) (Master), Human Rights (political perspectives) (Master) and Reviewing Prior Research (Master).

I supervise on the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels.

Since January 2013, I am Coordinator for the Master Programme in Political Science at the Department of Government.
