My main research interests concern lie within the area of Global Political Economy, and currently focuses in particular on the relationship between global capitalism and geopolitics. A key project here (conducted with Naná de Graaff) concerns the social sources of US grand strategy, especially in the post-Cold War era. Other projects concern the possible shift towards post-neoliberalism in the global political economy and the resurgence of the state in global capitalism in the context of the apparent power shift towards the East. Next, an ongoing part of my research agenda remains the transnational political economy of European integration and European socio-economic governance. These research projects are conducted within within the Amsterdam Research Centre for International Political Economy (www.arcipe.eu) that is located within the Department of Political Science and that links researchers from universities in the Netherlands (VU University Amsterdam, Radboud University Nijmegen), Denmark (Copenhagen Business School) and Germany (Goethe Universität Frankfurt), and is co-directed by myself and Prof. Henk Overbeek. As a member of the Netherlands Institute of Government (NIG), I particpate in the programme 'Governance in Europe'.
