Anna Knaps obtained her PhD, ‘The Relevance of International Legal Theory for International Relations Theory. A Normative Perspective’, at the War Studies Department, King’s College London, in 2016.

Having completed her LLB in German and English Law at KCL and the Humboldt University of Berlin and her MA in International Relations at KCL, her research interests lie in the relation between the disciplines of IR and IL.

She is interested in looking at the parallels in IR and IL theory, focussing particularly on normative theories. During the Max Weber Fellowship she wants to explore the role of authority and how it shapes the intersection of international relations and international law.

Previous to the Max Weber Fellowship Anna was a Research Associate at the Robert Schuman Centre for a research project on the Memory of Financial Crises.

While doing her PhD, Anna was Programme and Research Officer at the Convoco Think Tank in London and taught undergraduate courses at KCL on ‘Causes of War’.
