Lorinc Redei joined the LBJ School of Public Affairs as a full-time Lecturer in 2013. He had previously been Adjunct Professor at the LBJ School and at Southwestern University. He earned his B.A. in Political Science from Middlebury College, his M.A. in European Studies from the BMW Center for German and European Studies at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, and his Ph.D. in International Relations from Central European University in Budapest. 

He also has policy experience within the institutions of the European Union: from 2005-2008, he worked as a Press Officer at the European Parliament, primarily focusing on the work of the Foreign Affairs Committee and the Parliament's relations with actors outside of the EU. He returned to Brussels in 2011 to handle the Hungarian-language press communications for the European Parliament during Hungary's six-month Presidency of the European Council.

Dr. Redei's research takes advantage of these experiences, focusing on the role of the European Parliament in the EU's foreign policy-making process, especially its parliamentary diplomacy. He also writes on the image of the EU as a normative power, the EU's contribution to the European security architecture, and various topics in transatlantic relations. His CV is available here.
