Sascha Lohmann, AGSR Fellow
AICGS is pleased to welcome Sascha Lohmann as an AICGS/GMF Fellow with the American-German Situation Room in Washington, DC, in May 2018.
Mr. Lohmann is a Fritz Thyssen Fellow at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, Harvard University. Previously, he was a fellow at the Americas Division of the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP) in Berlin. His academic work focuses on International Relations theory, the theory and practice of foreign policy advice, as well as the intersection of political economy and national security with an empirical focus on the United States and the member countries of the European Union. He has consulted with the German government and parliament, German business associations, as well as the Departments of Treasury and State on the use of U.S. economic sanctions against state and non-state actors. A political scientist by training, he graduated with a diploma from Free University Berlin and completed a PhD at Goethe University Frankfurt.
As a GMF/AICGS Fellow, Sascha Lohmann explores the consequences of President Donald J. Trump’s proclaimed “America First” approach for transatlantic cooperation on ensuring the peacefulness of the Iranian nuclear program, coping with the Russian Federation’s ongoing interferences in Eastern Ukraine and beyond, as well as mitigating disagreement on both sides of the Atlantic about the appropriate means to effectively deal with these issues.
