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).  

Research interests

By discipline: 

  • International Relations: theories and history of IR, comparative foreign policy, strategic and security studies.
  • Political Science: comparative governments and parties.
  • Public International Law.

By area: 

  • 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.

Background & education

I come from Bielsko-Biała, Poland. I graduated from Jagiellonian University in Kraków (Department of International and Political Studies) with M.A. in International Relations.
