Professor Christoph Bluth
Professor of International Studies
My key area of work is in international security. Prior to coming to Leeds, I was Professor of International and European Studies at the University of Reading.
While at King's College London, I worked with Sir Lawrence Freedman and Robert O'Neill on the four-nation Nuclear History Programme, before taking up a lectureship in International Relations at the University of Essex.
My research interests are in international security studies, especially nuclear weapons policies and the prevention of the spread of weapons of mass destruction. My regional expertise is in Russia and Eurasia, Pakistan, Iraq, Germany, and North East Asia (especially Korea). I am involved in a Leeds University initiative on terrorism and also the Korean Research Hub (University of Leeds and Sheffield).
My teaching interests are in all aspects of international security. Currently I teach on strategic studies and terrorism.
I am interested in proposals related to contemporary international security, including the following.
- Nuclear non-proliferation
- Korea and North East Asian security
- Iraq, Russia and Eurasia
- Cold War History
