About Fredrik Söderbaum

Professor in peace and development research at the School of Global Studies (SGS).

Research

My primary research interests are comparative regionalism, the EU:s role in the world, development research, global and regional governance, and African studies. Current research centers around the following three research projects:

Regional Cooperation and the Transformation of National Sovereignty (TRANSFORM), funded by the Swedish Research Council (2019-2022)

Legitimacy in Global Governance (LegGov), a research programme funded by Riksbankens Jubilieumsfond (2016-2022)

External Funding of Regional Organisations in Africa (EFRO), funded by the Swedish Research Council (2016-2020)

Education

I am involved in a range of courses on different levels and in different disciplines at SGS and to a lesser extent also in other programmes and disciplines. Currently I am supervising two PhD students in peace and development research and a total of four additional PhD students in Belgium, Germany and China.
