Jakob Dreyer researches international relations with a focus on the relationship between security politics and climate change. Theoretically, Jakob´s thesis studies distant, slow and indirect forms of harm and violence across policy areas from human-induced climate change to remote warfare. He studies such phenomena from the perspective of political sociology combining qualitative and quantitative methods. Empirically Jakob works on the external dimensions of European security and climate policy with a special interest in the EUs climate policy, the Green Deal.

Jakob has a background as a linguist officer in Arabic and was deployed to Operation Inheren Resolve in 2016 and 2017. He has previously worked at the Danish Institute for International Studies.
