Thomas Sommerer

 

Associate Professor (Docent)


Since 2009, I am a Research Fellow at the Department of Political Science, Stockholm University. Previously, I have been working at the University of Konstanz (Dr. rer soc. in 2009), the University of Hamburg and the Max Planck Institute in Bonn.


My current research is focussed on the design and performance of international organizations, the role of transnational actors in global governance, and policy diffusion.


At the Department of Political Science, I teach courses on methodology, international organizations and environmental policy.


You can find an overview of my research  and recent papers on ResearchGate and Academia.edu.
