Laura Horn

I am Associate Professor International Relations and European Integration at the Department of Society and Globalisation at the University of Roskilde, Denmark.

My research focuses on the global political economy, with particular attention to the regional manifestation of these processes in the context of European integration. I’m interested in the changing nature of capitalist restructuring and how these developments affect social power relations. Empirically, my work focuses on the regulation of corporate governance and corporate accountability in the EU and beyond; the nature of the emerging European state formation; the question of which role organized labour can play in the (re)formulation of economic and social policies at the EU level, as well as a broader examination of left strategies and alternatives in the context of the challenges posed by the financial, economic, social and environmental crisis.

I'm a board member of the ESA Critical Political Economy Research Network Publications.
