Research Fellow


Eva Michaels is a postdoctoral research fellow at IBEI in the framework of the H2020 research project ENGAGE (ENsuring Good GlobAl Governance for the European Union).  She is also teaching two courses on the MA in International Security (research seminar/qualitative methods & theories of international security). Eva joins us from King's College London where she obtained her PhD in 2016 (looking at the acceptability of EU military operations in Africa at the national level in France and the UK between 2003 and 2013) and where she taught and contributed to various research projects on European foreign policy. Her most recent collaborative research project explored the link between estimative intelligence and decision-making when Europeans faced various crises – namely the Arab spring, Ukraine and the rise of ISIS. Eva is interested in the theory and practice of European foreign policy, with an emphasis on crisis response, intelligence-policy nexus, CSDP and EU-Africa cooperation. She also worked for think tanks in London, Berlin, Paris, Brussels, Vienna and Johannesburg.
