Guri Rosén's main areas of academic interest include the EU's external trade policy, the Common Foreign and Security Policy, and the European Parliament,

Background

Guri Rosén is a former PhD student at ARENA and defended her dissertation in January 2015. She holds a master in political science from the University of Oslo and an MSc in sociology from the University of Oxford.

Projects

In February 2015, Guri Rosén started on a postdoctoral project based on a grant from the Norwegian Research Council, titled: From Zero to Hero: Explaining the European Parliament's Influence on EU External Trade Policy

From 2015-2016, Rosén was based at the University of Gothenburg, at the Centre for European Research (CERGU).

Summary of the project:

The EU is the world's largest and most powerful trading bloc. As a result, the EU's external trade policy is also its most important foreign policy instrument. At the moment, however, the EU?s role as international trade actor is under immense pressure. Not only is the Chinese economy anticipated to exceed that of the Western world. The financial crisis has also increased the expectations directed towards the EU's trade policy.

In addition to this external strain, the EU is also facing increasing pressure from one of its own. The Lisbon Treaty gave the European Parliament considerable powers over the EU?s trade policy. The fact that the Parliament now will contribute to the making of trade legislation and veto international trade agreements has triggered a small revolution in the field. The question then is, in what direction the European Parliament will push the EU's trade policy.

The European Parliament has traditionally been at the forefront promoting principles such as human rights and sustainable development. At the same time, international trade politics have a direct consequence for the everyday lives of many European citizens. Therefore, it is not unlikely that Members of the European Parliament will put up an extra fight for their own, national voters. In any event, this will put its mark on the EU?s trade policy.

The EP could add force to national divisions and potentially complicate international negotiations, or become an advocate for non-trade objectives pulling trade into the realm of foreign policy. The goal of this project is to understand and explain the European Parliament's role in the EU?s trade policy. Doing so will also give a better understanding of what we can expect from the EU as an international trade actor in the years to come.
