Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests are primarily in the areas of strategic narratives, German, European and global security issues and European integration.

I have published a number of books including, Strategic Narratives: Communication Power and the New World Order, New York: Routledge, 2013 (with Ben O'Loughlin and Laura Roselle) which was awarded the 2016 Best Book Award on International Communication by the International Studies Association. I also co-edited a volume with Ben O'Loughlin and Laura Roselle Forging the World: Strategic Narratives in International Relations, which was published by the University of Michigan Press in 2017.

I am currently working on a Jean Monnet Project entitled, Youth Opinion and Opportunities for EU Public Diplomacy:  Youth Narratives and Perceptions of the EU and EU-Ukraine Relations in Ukraine and the three Baltic States (E-YOUTH), which focuses on a comprehensive analysis of youth opinion(tertiary/secondary level students and youth leaders) in Ukraine and the EU (three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania). More details on the project can be found here: https://jeanmonnet.nz/eyouth/

I am interested in working with PhD students and Post-doctoral researchers working on strategic narratives, international security, German foreign policy and German European policy.

I am Series Editor of the Palgrave Book Series in International Political Communication.
