Nele Marianne Ewers-Peters
Dr. Nele Marianne Ewers-Peters is a DAAD Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Foreign Policy Institute at John Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, DC. Her research interests lie at the intersection of European security, security cooperation and global governance with a particular focus on Europe and the transatlantic community. At SAIS, she works on the conceptualization of a (new) European security architecture through which she seeks to examine the relations and interactions between the EU, NATO, OSCE and their member states in the construction of the contemporary European security order.
Dr. Ewers-Peters completed her PhD in International Relations at the University of Kent in 2019 and was Doctoral Visiting Scholar at Katholieke Universeit Leuven. In her thesis titled, "How Member States Matter for the EU-NATO Interorganisational Relationship: A Typology," she analyzed how member states seek to shape cooperation between the European Union and NATO. She developed a typology of member states, which she applied to examine the role of member states in this particular relationship. Her additional research interests include the EU’s relations with other regional organisations such as the African Union and ASEAN, as well as the role of the European External Action Service in EU diplomacy.
Apart from her research, Dr Ewers-Peters is co-convenor of the European Security Working Group of the British International Studies Association (BISA) and has recently been committee member of the Graduate Forum of the University Association for Contemporary European Studies (UACES). She studied European Studies, Social Sciences and International Relations in Germany, Finland and the United Kingdom. Her previous professional experiences include working in the European Parliament, for the European Information Centre Berlin, as project coordinator for Weltfriedensdienst eV, and assistant lecturer at the University of Kent and University College London.
