Kort beskrivning

Vi är en grupp aktiva forskare som intresserar oss för området internationell politik. Under de senaste åren har vår forskning i huvudsak handlat om de breda områdena; utrikespolitisk analys, global styrning, genus och internationella relationer, transnationella rörelser och internationell säkerhet. Mer specifikt har vi diskuterat frågor som utrikespolitiskt ledarskap, genus och diplomati, staters förhållande till FN, trender i folkopinionen kring utrikespolitiska sakfrågor, och säkerhets- och försvarspolitik, inklusive NATO och EU.

Forskningsområden

  • Utrikespolitiskt ledarskap
  • genus och diplomati
  • internationella normer
  • internationella hierarkier
  • amerikansk utrikespolitik

  • miljöpolitik och internationella relationer
  • de politiska partierna och utrikespolitiken
  • NATO och Europeisk säkerhet
