War in Ukraine: Professor Harald Schoen receives additional funding for research on European common defence and shared security

The Volkswagen Foundation has approved additional funding for Professor Harald Schoen’s and External Fellow Dr. Matthias Mader’s project B3.1839 “Fighting Together, Moving Apart? European Common Defence and Shared Security in an Age of Brexit and Trump” to conduct further research in the context of the war in Ukraine.

The project aims to examine the dynamic relationship between elites and masses in policy-making about common defence in the multi-level European system. The project combines qualitative (elite interviews) and quantitative research (surveys with embedded experiments and media content analysis) to examine what factors affect European security policy preferences.
