Welcome to my websiteTrineke Palm PhD | Assistant Professor| International Security Studies | Netherlands Defence Academy
Since July 2020, I am Assistant Professor International Security Studies at the Netherlands Defence Academy.
Previously I worked as postdoctoral researcher at Utrecht University (2016-2020). In the interdisciplinary research project “Blueprints of Hope: designing post-War Europe” led by professor Beatrice de Graaf, I worked on the emergence of the EU as an emotional (security) community from the 1930s-1950s.
In 2017 I defended my PhD-research, funded by NWO Research Talent, at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. In my PhD-research I studied the EU’s role in the world. My dissertation deals with the question whether the EU’s use of military means since 2003 has changed the EU’s presence in international affairs. Has the EU become a more realist great power like the US, or has it used military means in support of its normative ideals?
