Jakub Eberle

I am Doctoral Researcher in the Department of Politics and International Studies. Before coming to Warwick, I studied at the University of St Andrews, University of Kent and the Charles University in Prague. Supervised by Christopher Browning and Stuart Croft, I am trying to approach German foreign policy from a discourse theoretical perspective.

In September-December 2014 I was Visiting Researcher at the Otto Suhr Institute of Political Science, Freie Universität Berlin. My stay was funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

Research Interests

  • Discourse theory (the Essex School in particular)
  • International Relations theory
  • Poststructuralism and critical constructivism in International Relations
  • Foreign policy analysis
  • German foreign policy
  • Czech foreign policy

PhD Thesis

My PhD thesis, tentatively titled Logics of Foreign Policy: Germany and International Interventions, focuses on discursive production of German foreign policy in two recent international crises: Iraq 2002/2003 and Libya 2011. I am particularly interested in the operation, clash and mutual contamination of different logics that inform and construct foreign policy decisions. My doctoral research is funded by the University of Warwick Chancellor's Scholarship.
