Primary Fields of Research

Cornelia Baciu is a scholar in international security organizations and conflict research. She is developing a research agenda that seeks to introduce the notion of ‘order’ understood as the interplay and governance processes between state institutions, everyday power relations, and the international organization. She investigates especially how evolutionary stable peaceful equilibria can be achieved and under what conditions institutional change can occur, by looking empirically at case studies of established democratic orders as well as of hybrid or fragile orders. She also specialized in meta-science, where she focuses on epistemological pluralism and research methods. 

Cornelia Baciu is Deputy Convener of the BISA Foreign Policy Working Group and founding Director of the Research Network 'European Security and Strategy'.
