Larissa Versloot is a PhD fellow at the University of Copenhagen. Her project investigates diplomatic practices in the context of international negotiations, with a focus on the role of (dis-)trust for state cooperation and coalition building. The research is grounded in International Relations (constructivism, practice theory) and furthermore draws on insights from social psychology (identity, categorisation, role formation). Studying EU Council meetings about the EU’s common foreign and security policy, it uses interviews and participant observation to understand the importance of diplomat’s daily (dis-)trusting for everyday practices of coalition building. The PhD is supervised by prof. Rebecca Adler-Nissen.
