Fulbright-Schuman Scholar Grant for Joris Larik
Dr. Joris Larik, Assistant Professor of Comparative, EU and International Law at the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs — Leiden University College, has been awarded a Fulbright-Schuman Scholar Grant to conduct research in the United States. For the academic year 2017-2018, a total of five Fulbright-Schuman Grants were awarded at the post-PhD level.
From August 2017 to February 2018 dr. Larik will be based at the Center for Transatlantic Studies of the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, which is part of Johns Hopkins University and located in Washington D.C. His project, entitled “Forms of foreign policy collaboration in the unraveled Transatlantic space: From ‘two pillars’ to ‘peristyle’?”, aims to map and assess a set of effective, politically workable, and legally feasible modes of Transatlantic foreign policy cooperation in response to upheavals on both sides of the Atlantic, most notably “Brexit” and the U.S. presidential elections. Next to a general framework, he we will focus on the areas of trade and defence policy. The project builds on his earlier work on the EU’s new Global Strategy for Foreign and Security Policy and his 2016 monograph on “Foreign Policy Objectives in European Constitutional Law”.
