Dr Hugo Meijer is a CNRS Research Fellow at Sciences Po Paris, Center for International Studies (CERI), and is the Founding Director of The European Initiative for Security Studies (EISS), a multidisciplinary network of scholars that share the goal of consolidating security studies in Europe. His research interests lie at the intersection of foreign policy analysis and security studies, with a particular interest in the triangle between the US and China, the US and Europe, and Europe and China.

Dr Meijer is currently working on two research projects: the reconfiguration of American hegemony through the prism of the US-led regional alliance systems in Europe and in the Asia-Pacific since the end of the Second World War; and on European foreign and security policies in the face of a rising China in the post-Cold War period. Previously, he was Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the European University Institute (EUI, Florence), Lecturer in Defence Studies at King’s College London and a Researcher at the Institute for Strategic Research (IRSEM, Paris). Dr Meijer was also a Senior Common Room Member at St. Antony’s College, Oxford University and a visiting scholar at the Sigur Center for Asian Studies at George Washington University. He received his Ph.D. in International Relations from Sciences Po (cum laude), completed his M.A. in International Relations at Johns Hopkins University/School of Advanced International Studies (Washington DC/Bologna) and his B.A. in political economy at the LUISS (Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali) Guido Carli in Rome.

In relation to this discussion, see his recent article in International Security, entitled “Illusions of Autonomy: Why Europe Cannot Provide for Its Own Security Even if the United States Pulls Back”, which he co-authored with Stephen Brooks from Dartmouth College. This article (and the impressive research on which it is based) provides the basis for this podcast.
