Julian Eckl, Dr. (Institute of Political Science, University of Hamburg, Germany)

Presence: August to October 2017

Julian Eckl is a post-doctoral researcher and lecturer at the University of Hamburg. His research interests include: global health governance, the society of states, diplomacy, public-private partnerships, and multilateral international organizations. He was trained as a political scientist but draws also on neighboring fields like ethnology/anthropology, history, and science and technology studies. From a methodological point of view, much of his recent research combines participant observation with the analysis of historical material. His main research project is a political ethnography of sites of global health governance; it investigates the way in which the participants try to deal with the practical challenges that this kind of political work entails.

During his stay in Basel, he will analyze empirical material that was collected in the course of this project. A particular focus will be on micro-practices of sovereignty and on the role of “Europe” in global health governance.

She has been a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Mannheim and a junior fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in Constance (Konstanz).

The multidisciplinary approaches, the focus on governance and the analysis of actors and agencies in global contexts make the Institute for European Global Studies a perfect environment for her research.
