Hans Schattle works across the usual dividing lines in political science and international relations, with interests ranging from globalization, citizenship, media and democracy to the politics of Europe and East Asia. He has written two books, Globalization and Citizenship (2012) and The Practices of Global Citizenship (2007), both published by Rowman & Littlefield, as well as numerous articles in academic journals and commentaries in newspapers, including The New York Times / International Herald Tribune, The Guardian and The Christian Science Monitor. Most recently he has co-edited the volume Making Social Democrats: Citizens, Mindsets, Realities (2018), published by Manchester University Press. He often gives interviews to journalists around the world and worked as a news reporter in his native New England before launching his academic career.
