Before joining King's College in January 2007, he was a Lecturer at Birkbeck, University of London, and a research associate at the University of Cologne. He also worked intermittently in journalism, writing articles for the NZZ, FAZ and Frankfurter Rundschau.
Professor Meyer’s research interests are wide-ranging within the field of European Union studies and international relations. In terms of policy fields, he has been working on security and defence policy, including conflict prevention, public communication and media coverage as well as economic governance. He has contributed to debates about the European public sphere and political integration, European strategic culture and questions of forecasting and prevention of risks.
Professor Meyer has published in leading academic journals in International Relations (ISQ, EJIR) and European Union Studies (JCMS, JEPP) and edited two books and special issues/sections of journals as well as two single-authored monographs.
Professor Meyer is mainly interested in supervising students in areas relating to EU foreign policy, political communication, and finally, forecasting, warning and prevention in international affairs.
