Personlig profil

Forskningsområde

My research interests fall within International Relations theory, particularly the English School approach, disarmament, security studies and world history.

Currently I am pursuing two research projects. One is concerned with the phenomenon of unilateral disarmament in international society. Drawing on the English School approach, I explore the political, moral and practical reasoning that have pushed some states to adopt unilateral disarmament as a policy, and moreover look at how this policy is defended in international fora. The second project is a joint monograph with Barry Buzan in which we attempt to build a new framework for understanding international society at the global level and this society’s social cohesion.

These projects are extensions of my previous English School-inspired work on regional international society (in Scandinavia) and international institutions in world history.

CV

I hold a doctorate in International Relations from the London School of Economics and was a Carlsberg postdoctoral fellow at the New School, New York, and SOAS, London, before coming to Roskilde as an assistant professor in 2012. Previously, I have also been an Anna Lindh fellow at Stanford University and co-editor of Millennium: Journal of International Studies.
