About Fredrik Söderbaum

In 2003 I defended my thesis on Regionalism in Africa, and I became associate professor in peace and development research the year after. Since 2007, when I became a lecturer, I have divided my time between research, education and a variety of leadership duties. In 2009 I accepted the position as Deputy Head of Department with responsibility for research. I am a founding member of the Gothenburg Center for Globalization and Development, which is one of the prioritized research areas of Gothenburg university. In the early 2000s I became a senior associate research fellow of the Institute of Comparative Regional Integration Studies at the United Nations University (UNU-CRIS), Brugge, Belgien, where I participate in a series of research projects and research programmes. Occasionally I am participating in the public debate or interviewed by the media. Sometimes I am also acting as expert or consultant in the field of international affairs and development cooperation.

Areas of interest
My most important research results are in the field of regionalism and regional integration, where I have covered a large number of topics and issues, ranging from theory, comparison, scales of regionalism, actors of regionalism, to detailed case studies of specific regions (mainly in Africa) and policy areas. EU´s external relations constitute another area of expertise. In this field I have focused on the EU´s ambition to establish itself as a global actor and on the EU´s internal dynamics in the field of security policy and international development cooperation. Lately I have devoted more attention to a third area of interest: various types external interventions and external engagements in different policy areas, especially by the West in the developing world. Here I am contributing to the research group on ”Reconstruction and Intervention” within the department. External interventions and the impact on domestic governance constitutes also the research agenda of the aforementioned Gothenburg Center for Globalization and Development, where I am mainly involved in the subproject on security interventions.

Current research
EU as a Global-Regional Actor in Security and Peace (EU-GRASP), funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Program (www.eugrasp.eu).

Comparative Regionalism and Regional Integration, funded by UNU-CRIS.

Intersecting Interregionalism, funded by UNU-CRIS

Stemming Violence Against Civilians? Effective External Security Sector Reform in Conflict/Post-Conflict Settings — the case of the DRC, funded by Sida, together with Maria Stern, Maria Eriksson-Baaz and Stina Hansson.

Teaching and tutoring
I lecture, mainly on matters related to my own research, on different levels and in different disciplines. Nearly all of my supervision is conducted within the Master program in global studies. Currently I am supervising four doctoral candidates within the department and one candidate in Belgium.
