Susanne Mueller-Redwood’s research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of international relations and comparative politics, with an emphasis on international organizations, economic policy and domestic-international linkages. Her current research focuses on the foreign politics of authoritarian states. It explores the circumstances under which dictators join international institutions, how they shape these institutions, and how this in turn influences their relationships with other states. In related work, she studies monetary policy and central bank legislation in authoritarian states. She enjoys teaching courses on world politics, the politics of authoritarianism and research methods.
