Johannes Muntschick

Dr. Johannes Muntschick conducts research on the emergence, institutional design, dynamics and performance of regionalism in the global South, notably in sub-Saharan Africa and the SADC region. He analyses policy areas such as the economy, security and infrastructure and specialises on the influence of external actors on regionalism. Apart from that, he is interested in theories of international relations, governance and fragile statehood.

In 2011 Johannes joined the Johannes Gutenberg-University in Mainz (Germany), where he was the coordinator of the trinational MA ‘European Studies’ and teaches currently as a postdoc European and international politics, international institutions and global regionalism. He finished his PhD on ‘Regionalism and External Influence: The SADC and the ambivalent Impact of the EU on Regional Integration’ at the Otto-Friedrich University in Bamberg (Germany) in 2015 and has represented the university’s Juniorprofessur for European and International Politics in the summer term 2017. Throughout his course of studies, Johannes has conducted several research trips to Sub-Saharan Africa, particularly South Africa, Botswana and Namibia.

Johannes is currently undertaking research on external support to regional integration organisations in Africa and assessing its impact and effectiveness. A focus shall be on the issue areas of peace and security and governance. Research includes elaborating appropriate evaluation mechanisms for externally fuelled aid activities as well as investigating whether and how recipients possibly misuse external support for purposes not intended by the donors.
