Welcome to the Research Group of Prof. Dirk Leuffen
Our teaching and research focuses on the interaction between domestic and international politics. How do domestic factors shape states' external actions, how does the international level impact on policy-making in nation states?
European Union Politics and International Relations
We are interested in European Union politics and international relations more generally. Moreover, in our research we combine both quantitative and qualitative methods.
We are particularly interested in:
- The political system of the EU - EU Enlargement - European Integration / Differentiated Integration - German foreign policy
