Institutional Change in EU-Africa Relations: Implications of Security Cooperation

Toni Haastrup is a Fellow in International Security in the Department of Politics and International Relations and the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation (CSGR). Her research has explored the increasing role of regional organisations in the global reordering of power, building on her PhD work on the dynamics of EU-Africa relations, particularly the interactions between the EU and the nascent African Union Peace and Security Architecture (APSA) of the African Union (AU). She has published articles, book chapters and working papers in this area and is currently developing new research that examines gender mainstreaming within the APSA in the context of the EU’s support, and completing her first research monograph.
