Curriculum vitae

Johannes Scherzinger is a post-doctoral researcher at the Chair of International Relations and International Political Economy, and a guest scholar at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center. His research interests focus on international organizations—particularly the UN Security Council—politics of intervention, international negotiation, IR Theory, and computational text analysis. Using a series of methods belonging to automated corpus linguistics, his doctoral thesis investigated whether dominant normative rhetoric spoken in public Security Council debates can affect the types of actions and decisions in Council interventions. In 2022, he was awarded the International Studies Association’s (ISA) Robert W. and Jessie Cox Award for the best Graduate Student Paper in IR with a critical inquiry.

Before joining IPZ, Johannes was doctoral scholarship holder at the Global Governance Unit of the WZB Berlin Social Science and obtained a Ph.D. in Political Science from Freie Universität Berlin. Prior to his PhD, he received an M.A. from the FU-Berlin, and a B.A. from the LMU-Munich. During his Masters, he was a Fulbright Scholar (2016-2017) at the School of International Service, American University, Washington, D.C., studying international peace and conflict resolution.
