Senior Fellow, Institute of European Studies
Marianne Riddervold is Associate Professor at the Norway University of the Applied Sciences and a Guest Researcher at ARENA – Centre for European Studies at the University of Oslo in Norway. At ARENA she is part of a research group studying The External Dimension of European Political Order. The overarching research questions of this field of study are: has EU foreign policy integration moved beyond intergovernmentalism? If so, how can we account for such a move? In 2013, she was awarded a three-year post-doctoral fellowship grant (2014-2016) from the Norwegian Ministry of Defense to study EU maritime security policies, which is the main topic of her post-doc project. In 2015-16 she was a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley’s Institute of European Studies.
Marianne Riddervold's main areas of academic interest include the EU as an international actor, the EU’s common foreign and security policies, global and European maritime security policies, and theory development within the field of European integration and international relations. Riddervold’s recent publications include “EU Maritime Security Policies; Aims, Actors and Mechanisms of Integration” (forthcoming 2017, Palgrave MacMilllan). She has published in a wide number of peer reviewed journals and edited books, including Journal of Common Market Studies, Politics and Governance, European Security, EU Foreign Affairs Review, Cooperation and Conflict and Journal of European Public Policy.
Marianne Riddervold has participated in a number of projects at ARENA, amongst others “The Domain of foreign and security policy at times of crisis” financed by the Research Council of Norway (2013–17) and the work package on “Foreign and Security Dimension” of ‘RECON – Reconstituting Democracy in Europe’ funded by the EU Framework 6 Program for Research and Innovation (2007-2011). She has taught EU integration and International Relations at the Buskerud and Vestfold University College (HIBU). Before starting her PH.D studies, Marianne Riddervold worked for the Norwegian Maritime Directorate.
