My research interests include European Union politics and policy-making, EU-UK relations, Justice and Home Affairs policy, as well as EU relations with North Africa, Middle East and Euro-Mediterranean relations. In 2022/2023 I am co-investigator on a research project on the concept of civic duty in times of pandemic (Co-Duties, financed by Norwegian Research Council) and will continue to develop research on the concept of coordinative Europeanization and EU governance in times of permanent emergency (with S. Ladi).
My current research in the field of EU foreign policy is embedded in critical international relations approaches challenging Eurocentrism and European post-colonialism in EU foreign policy. More specifically I have developed innovative research on the role of secularism and religion in EU foreign policy. I am also involved in understanding the transformation of the EU and the UK as security providers in a post-Brexit environment.
