Center for Transnational Studies, Foreign and Security Policy (ATASP)

Ihnestr. 22 Room 105 14195 Berlin

The Center focuses on theory-guided empirical research of trans- and international relations. The issue areas addressed by the various members of staff and fellows cover global governance, German foreign policy, European security, and transatlantic relations. The Center is also engaged in research and teaching with regard to the European Union (EU). The focal point of these activities is the Research College (Kolleg-Forschergruppe) "The Transformative Power of Europe" which is also funded by the German Research Foundation and directed by Prof. Dr. Tanja A. Börzel as well as Thomas Risse.

The Center's outreach goes far beyond the FU and Berlin area due to its public events, expert seminars, the incorporation of foreign students and visiting scholars as well as its staff’s and fellows' activities at international conferences and within international research projects and networks.
