Philipp Liesenhoff, AGSR Fellow

AICGS is pleased to welcome Philipp Liesenhoff as an AICGS/GMF Fellow with the American-German Situation Room in Washington, DC, until June 2018.

In Germany, Philipp Liesenhoff works at the German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP) in Berlin. An economist by training, he worked as a research assistant at the German Marshall Fund between 2014 and 2017 and has previous work experience at the German Federal Ministry of Finance, the Federation of German Industries, and the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP).

He holds an MA in International Economics from the University of Bayreuth and received his BA in Governance and Public Policy from the University of Passau. He is completing his PhD in the field of macro-finance and was a visiting scholar at the School of Advanced International Affairs (SAIS) at Johns Hopkins University in Washington, DC, in 2016/17.

During his time in Washington, Philipp Liesenhoff will focus his research on the impact of U.S. economic and financial reforms and executive trade measures on Europe and how, vice versa, national policy dynamics of EU member states and European governance reforms will shape Europe’s responses to President Trump’s new economic paradigm of “America First.”

The views expressed are those of the author(s) alone. They do not necessarily reflect the views of the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies.
