Research group for Global Order and Diplomacy

In what ways are the structures and contents of world politics changing? How do global power dynamics influence states’ foreign policy – and vice versa? What characterizes Norway’s past and present role on the international arena?

NUPI’s research group on global order and diplomacy conducts research on the changing character of international politics, and the making and practice of states’ foreign policy within it. Special attention is given to developments in and changes to Norwegian foreign policy.

Researchers in the group conduct theory-driven as well as empirically grounded research, and seek to contextualize current affairs historically and comparatively.

The group is led by Morten Skumsrud Andersen.
