Dr Emmanuelle Blanc is a Fellow in the International Relations Department at LSE. Her primary research interest lies in the study of EU foreign policy, diplomacy, and the quest for recognition in International Relations. Her doctoral thesis explored the extensive use of political dialogues by the European Union in its external relations, particularly vis-à-vis the United States. While analysing the various formats of transatlantic dialogues, the research theorized about the micro-processes of recognition at play in dialogical interactions. Expert in EU-Israel relations, Emmanuelle is also an affiliated Senior Fellow at the Herzl Center for Israel Studies at Charles University, Prague.
