Research Interests

Klaus Larres is an expert on contemporary U.S. and German/EU foreign, economic, and security policies toward the transatlantic world and China and S.E. Asia. He writes and lectures on post-Cold War geopolitics, U.S. foreign policy, European integration, and the complex interactions that shape the triangle US-EU/Germany-China. He also has a great interest in the history of the Cold War and the politics of Winston Churchill.

In short, Larres’ major research interests are threefold: 1. Current U.S. and EU/German economic and security policies toward China and S.E. Asia; 2. Transatlantic relations, U.S., German and British foreign policy, and European integration; and 3. International history of the 20th century, in particular the Cold War and the politics of Winston Churchill.
