Dublin City University is delighted to announce that Daniel Keohane is joining the University as a Senior Research Fellow, where he will be affiliated to the Institute for International Conflict Resolution and Reconstruction and the DCU Brexit Institute. Daniel will be working with Dr Kenneth McDonagh, at DCU School of Law and Government, focusing in particular on the evolving context of European security and foreign policy in the context of Brexit. Daniel is one of Europe’s leading analysts of foreign and security policy. He has worked in some of Europe’s most prestigious think tanks over the past 20 years, including at the European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) in Paris, the Centre for Security Studies at ETH Zürich, the Foundation for International Relations (FRIDE) in Brussels, the Centre for European Reform (CER), and the Aspen Institute in Berlin. Daniel previously worked at the European Movement Ireland in Dublin, and also spent time at the Institute for National Strategic Studies (INSS) at the National Defense University (NDU) in Washington DC.
Announcing this appointment Professor John Doyle, Dean of DCU’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences said: “Dublin City University has a strong commitment to generating and disseminating original research and expertise on international relations, and in recent years this has included a significant focus on analysing the implications of Brexit for Ireland and Europe, as demonstrated in the establishment and development of the DCU Brexit Institute. Over the past 3 years at almost 100 events, the details of Brexit and its implications have been debated between academics, policy-makers and various sectors of business and civil society. The implications of Brexit remain a fundamental issue of concern to Ireland and Europe and the consequences are still unclear. DCU is therefore delighted to be able to bring Daniel Keohane to Dublin City University to strengthen our ability to deliver on our mission to support national and European wide dialogue, based on high-quality research.”
