Research Interests:

Andreas’ research interests lie at the interface of International Relations and Global Health, with a focus on the health impacts of conflict, global health security, and global health governance. He also examines issues around conflict, atrocity crimes, humanitarian intervention and structural violence from an international political theory perspective and is particularly interested in critical and post-universal cosmopolitan thought and how it applies to these issues.
