Research Interests

Klaus Larres is an expert on contemporary transatlantic relations, European integration and twentieth-century American, German and British foreign policies in comparative perspective. His work focuses on the impact of post-1945 American hegemony and the repercussions of U.S. driven globalization on the political, economic, security related and cultural transformation processes in Europe and elsewhere. His research interests include the international history of the Cold War and the economic and geo-strategic developments in the post-Cold War world. The history, politics and economics of the EC/EU also feature prominently in his work. Since 2009 he has been a Senior Fellow at the Centre for Transatlantic Relations (CTR), a leading Washington, DC, based think tank and EU Centre of Excellence.
