Chair of International Relations & Regional Studies
The teaching and research focus of the Chair of International Relations and Regional Studies (Prof. Dr. Margit Bussmann) covers topics of peace of conflict studies, international political economy, foreign policy analysis, and international institutions. We put particular emphasis on theory-guided and empirical analysis of research questions relating to the causes and consequences of international and internal violent conflicts and questions of globalization and the distribution of wealth at the national, regional, and international levels.
Our current research focuses on civil wars, international interventions, and peacekeeping operations by international organizations, the stability of post-conflict societies, security in the Baltic Sea Region, Russian Foreign Policy, and the international political economy of oil states.
