Adam Krzykowski (born 31.10.1993 in Bielsko-Biała, Poland)
I am a PhD researcher at the European University Institute in Florence (Department of Political and Social Sciences). In my research project I explore the divergence of patterns and trajectories of the foreign and security policies in the Baltic Sea region. For that purpose I employ systemic and domestic theories of international relations (IR), combined with methodological tools of foreign policy analysis (FPA).
- International Relations: theories and history of IR, comparative foreign policy, strategic and security studies.
- Political Science: comparative governments and parties.
- Public International Law.
- Post-Soviet area: Central-Eastern Europe, Baltic region.
- Trans-Atlantic area.
My research interests focus on small and medium states which build up the ‘eastern flank’ of the Trans-Atlantic Alliance.
