EU Common Foreign and Security Policy; small states; Europeanisation; securitisation; Czech foreign and security policy.
My research and teaching focuses on the European Union's common foreign and security policy, particularly the institutional framework and the link between the CFSP and foreign and security policies of the member states. Lately, I have worked on the topic of the small states in European security, more specifically on the Czech Republic as a representative of the small EU member states.
