Dr Anna-Sophie Maass

Lecturer in International Relations and Diplomacy

Research Overview

My research is at the intersection of European Studies and International Relations. I conduct research on EU-Russian diplomatic relations, EU foreign policy towards Armenia, Georgia and Ukraine, energy security, Russian politics since the end of the 1990s and European security.

I am an editor of a policy brief series which I launched for the consortium funded by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST): https://foreignpolicynewrealities.eu/ which assesses the EU's perception as an actor in international politics. I also acted as the consortium's coordinator for a network supporting early career researchers.

In 2021 I contributed to a meta-evaluation on EU Macro-financial instruments commissioned by the Directorate General for Economic and Financial Affaisr at the European Commission. My research focused on assessing the effectiveness and the EU's added value of these instruments.
