BU Pardee Europe’s Role in US Grand Strategy: Indispensable or Insufferable?

Join us for a "Europe in the World" lunch talk by Linde Desmaele. This series - an initiative of the Jean Monnet Chair in European Security and Defense, Kaija Schilde, explores human, national, and European security from specific disciplinary angles. The aim of the series is to prompt critical reflection by a larger public on human and regional security informed by cross-national experiences and a variety of disciplinary lenses as well as to introduce or emphasize EU perspectives into ongoing debates around security integration and global challenges. Linde Desmaele is a Stanton Nuclear Security Fellow in the MIT Security Studies Program. Her research interests include US-Europe relations; the evolution of US grand strategy and its impact on transatlantic and European security; US regional deterrence strategies and alliance interdependence; and the role of leaders in IR theory. Her work has been published in journals such as European Security, International Studies Review, Strategic Studies Quarterly and Defence Studies. Linde is also a Senior Associate Researcher at the Centre for Security, Diplomacy and Strategy (CSDS) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium). She was formerly a Belgian-American Educational Postdoctoral Fellow, hosted at the Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies at Columbia University. She holds a PhD from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium), an M.A. from Seoul National University's Graduate School of International Studies (South Korea) and an M.A. from KU Leuven (Belgium).
