- The European Union as a global actor
- Decision-making in international organisations
- Nuclear non-proliferation
My current reseach is focused upon the project 'Power, Decision and Policy in the European Union' working alongside Professor John Peterson at the University of Edinburgh. That research considers how decision-making has changed in the EU over recent years, how it has reacted to crisis, and what divides - and unites - EU decision makers today. This study is being conducted with the intention of launching a larger multi-level research project on 'How the EU Decides' from 2019 and which will, crucially, be able to take the Brexit negotiations into account.
