Profile/Brief CV

Miguel Haubrich Seco studied Political Science, Economic Policy and Current and Modern History at the University of Freiburg. During his studies, he focused on the interplay between International Relations and the EU's development. Pursuing this interest, he is currently working on his PhD dissertation on the EU’s influence on regional cooperation beyond its borders (under co-tutelle at the University of Cologne and Charles University in Prague)

Before joining the Chair of Multilevel Governance, Miguel was a Marie Curie Fellow in the framework of the EXACT project on EU external action. During this time he worked at the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) in Rome, at the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) in Brussels and at the Universities of Cologne and Prague. Before joining the EXACT project, Miguel worked at the European Parliament, first as a trainee dealing with the Committee on Legal Affairs, and subsequently after graduation, for Elmar Brok, MEP, then rapporteur on the establishment of the European External Action Service.

His fields of interest include assessing the influence of the European Union as an international actor, foreign policy-making at the EU level, the promotion of regional integration and cooperation by the EU, its institutional development and EU inter-institutional affairs.
