Ulrika Möller


PhD, Assistant Professor and Director of Studies in political science.

Areas of interest

My primary areas of interest are international relations theory and foreign policy analysis. Global policy issues of special interest include climate change, nuclear weapons control, and fishery management. My research interest also includes Indian society and politics.

My doctoral thesis "The Prospects of Security Cooperation: A Matter of Relative Gains or Recognition?" (2007) adresses the problem of state defection from multilateral cooperation, with empirical focus on India's decision to repudiate the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) in 1996. Theoretically, the thesis develops an explanation to state defection which contradicts the commonly held view, launched by structural realism, of international politics as a self help system.

Current research

Currently, I am working in projects on 1) democratization and political leadership, 2) Iran's nuclear ambitions, and 3) Swedish foreign policy after the EU-membership.

Teaching and tutoring

My teaching covers topics such as international relations theory, global governance, global environmental politics and environmental security, and research design and qualitative methods.
