Senior Research Fellow
Frank Mattheis is Senior Researcher at GovInn and at the Institute for European Studies at the Université libre de Bruxelles in Belgium.
His work is driven by an interest in new governance structures beyond the nation state, chiefly in relation to regionalism. His recent publications deal with regionalism outside of regional organisationsand EU-Africa interregionalism.
Prior, Frank Mattheis was senior research fellow at the Centre for Area Studies of the University of Leipzig (Germany). He is trained in Global Studies with a M.A. from the Universities of Leipzig and Vienna and a Dr. phil. from the University of Leipzig. His doctoral thesis offers a conceptual framework to overcome Eurocentric theorising and Southern idiosyncrasy in the study of regionalisms.
