Welcome to my website!

My name is Dr Mareike (Ma-rye-keh) Kleine. I am Associate Professor of EU and International Politics at the London School of Economics. For the 2024/25 academic year, I am a visiting fellow at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs.

My research and teaching focuses on global governance, EU politics, international organization, and international political economy. I am interested in the dynamics between domestic politics and international cooperation. I have written extensively on the relationship between formal and informal governance in international organizations.

I received my training as a political scientist at Princeton University and Freie Universit├Ąt Berlin (Ph.D. 2009). Since then, I have held visiting appointments, among other institutions, at Harvard University, the European University Institute, Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin, University of St. Gallen, and Hertie School.

I have published in top field and general political science journals, such as the British Journal of Political Science, International Theory, Journal of Common Market Studies, Journal of European Public Policy, and the Review of International Organizations. My book Informal Governance in the European Union appeared in 2013 with Cornell University Press.

I frequently comment on current affairs on questions of global governance and EU politics, “Brexit” and transparency.
