Hi, I am a currently a visiting assistant professor in the Government Department at Cornell University. I have previously worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg and the Vienna School of International Studies. I hold a PhD in International Relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) where I have also served as the editor of the 43rd volume of Millennium: Journal of International Studies.
My research focuses on the European Union and its external relations regime, in particular. I am especially interested in how EU foreign policy is shaped by underlying administrative choices, how the EU operates within international organisations, as well as the challenges that Europeanisation pose for member state foreign ministries. I am the author of The EU in Association Agreement Negotiations, published by Routledge.
My interest to reflect on the future of the EU and European democracy extends further than my formal academic research activity. That is why I am also a visiting fellow at the Berlin-based think tank Das Progressive Zentrum. Currently I also serve as an expert member of the parliamentary enquiry committee on Brexit in Germany’s largest state North-Rhine Westphalia. I also tweet at @danieldschade about my areas of interest and beyond.
