Julia Kreienkamp is a researcher at the UCL Global Governance Institute, where she also works on the Horizon 2020 project Global Governance and the European Union: Future Trends and Scenarios (GLOBE). Julia holds a master’s degree in International Relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and a bachelor’s degree in Politics and Economics from the University of Münster. Before joining UCL, she worked in communications, marketing and community management, including for an international law firm and the Center for Security Studies at ETH Zurich. Prior to that, she was a Carlo-Schmid Fellow at the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) in Vienna.


Julia’s research focuses on the global governance of human rights, health and climate change, particularly with regard to the changing landscape for state and non-state climate action under the 2015 Paris Agreement. Most recently, she has explored (together with Tom Pegram) the implications of complexity thinking for governing existential global risks.
