Elisabeth’s work centers on the politics of international trade. In her role as programme director “Global Markets and Social Justice” at Bundeskanzler-Helmut-Schmidt-Stiftung (BKHS) she researches possibilities for a more equitable global trade governance focusing on transatlantic trade cooperation and its social consequences at national and international levels. Elisabeth graduated recently with a PhD thesis on US geoeconomics from Freie Universität where she teaches international trade and US foreign trade policy. As a project fellow, Elisabeth is interested in connecting transatlantic trade initiatives with the needs of industrial heartlands on both sides of the Atlantic. Acknowledging that global rules on trade affect all of us, she aims to identify concrete measures to do so through a human-centered approach.
